A Culture of Learning: Inside a Living-Learning Center
Kranzow, Jeannine; Hinkle, Sara E.; Muthiah, Richard; Davis, Colin
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v41 n2 p10-27 2015
Exploring the culture of a living-learning center, this study examines the educational practices that aim to link in- and out-of-class experiences. Through a cultural lens, the authors offer a glimpse into a living-learning center located within a state institution in the Midwest that models a way of effectively connecting the curricular and cocurricular experiences of students. The study provides descriptions of socialization, cultural artifacts, and student engagement in the community. Implications and recommendations for educators committed to enhancing learning and personal development in residential settings are provided.
