Enhancing Student Learning: Intellectual, Social, and Emotional Integration. ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Report No. 4.
Love, Patrick G.; Love, Anne Goodsell
This report examines the necessity for holistic learning--the integration of intellectual, social, and emotional aspects of learning at the undergraduate level. It reviews and evaluates research findings, theoretical models, and the relationship and interdependency of these developmental areas. An introductory chapter considers the increasing fragmentation of the learning process and defines the report's terminology. The following chapter reviews the historical development of the separation of social and emotional processes from student learning and identifies current cultural barriers to their integration as well as facilitating conditions for integration. The next two chapters review the research which demonstrates links among cognitive, social, emotional, and intellectual processes in the context of liberation theory, constructivist pedagogy, the critical cultural perspective, and collaborative learning theory. Individual issues in the links among intellectual, social, and emotional elements of learning are addressed including the need to expand the notion of learning and individual philosophy, practice, and transformation. The final chapter urges educators and institutions to: (1) provide visionary, persistent, and pervasive leadership; (2) promote student involvement in learning; (3) develop learning communities; (4) enhance the educational climate of residence halls; and (5) intentionally influence the socialization of faculty and student affairs professionals.
