Integrative Learning: Making Liberal Education Purposeful, Personal, and Practical
Ferren, Ann S.; Anderson, Chad B.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n145 p33-40 Spr 2016
This chapter explores three key features of integrative learning practice that play a vital role in fostering student success: guidance and support through critical transitions; entire development of the student; and engagement in project-based learning that connects learning to complex, real-world problems, and opportunities that can have practical application to careers and citizenship. The chapter focuses on examples from liberal arts colleges that can serve as models for any institution of higher learning.
