Freshmen Learning Community Program. Fall 1995. Formative Feedback Report #1.
Alexander, Baine B.; Penberthy, Debra L.
This report is based on the analysis of initial interviews with the staff of the Freshmen Learning Community Program (FLCP). FLCP is a pilot program in engineering education that focuses on diversity and cultural change. The primary purpose of this evaluative study is to provide feedback while the learning community program is being implemented. Data from students (N=13) and various staff included structured open-ended interviews and observations of discussion sections and learning program meetings. Five sections provide preliminary information regarding relevant issues, research questions, student experiences in the program, perspectives of the staff, and an appendix which contains the interview protocols.
