Broadening Participation in Research Focused, Upper-Division Learning Communities
Hinckley, Robert A.; McGuire, John P.
Learning Communities: Research & Practice, v3 n1 Article 5 2015

Using illustrations from our own learning community, we describe three strategies for success that focus on providing low cost incentives and other means to promote and sustain faculty cooperation.
