Curriculum Integration: The Experience of Three Founding Faculty at a New Community College
Saint-Louis, Nicole; Seth, Naveen; Fuller, Karla Smith
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v27 n3 p423-433 2015
This article explores the design and implementation of the curriculum for City Seminar, an integrated course in the first-year experience at a new community college. This interdisciplinary course focuses on a critical issue that provides content and context for quantitative reasoning (QR), reading, and writing (RW) to strengthen students' developmental skills. This integrated curriculum is taught in a learning community. Its goals include greater information retention, better transfer of knowledge and developmental skills-building while students earn college credit. These tie in with the College's overarching goals of improving retention and graduation rates. Early results from this curriculum are encouraging.
