Suggestions for Implementing First Year Experience Learning Communities in Teacher Education Programs
Hintz, Kathryn; Genareo, Vincent
Learning Communities: Research & Practice, v5 n1 Article 2 2017
This article describes the creation of a First Year Experience learning community in a teacher education program. The First Year Experience model was adopted by the university because of declining enrollment, retention, and graduation rates and has been generally successful in the education department. With little information available for teacher educators about this type of learning community, we offer recommendations for implementing and evaluating them.
