Joining "Us"; Creating and Maintaining a Discipline-Based Learning Community
McHugh, Kelly; Anderson, R. Bruce
Learning Communities: Research & Practice, v3 n2 Article 6 2015
The article describes the development of a disciplinary living/learning community in political science; the authors, two faculty members, started the community in the fall of 2012. The faculty leaders describe the various practices used to integrate political science courses in two subfields: American politics and international politics. In particular, the authors consider how, over the past five semesters, they have adapted their teaching practices to provide members of the LLC with a more holistic understanding of political processes, methods, and outcomes. They argue that their model would be applicable to a wide array of disciplines.
