Trial, Error, Triumph: A College Rethinks Its Core Curriculum
Jordan-Fleming, Mary Kay; Klabunde, Michael; Zane, Cynthia
About Campus, v10 n4 p23-26 Sep-Oct 2005
Promoting student learning can be difficult, even at a liberal arts and sciences college where faculty members are passionate about it. The authors have experienced these challenges at the College of Mount St. Joseph in the last five years as they have moved collegewide efforts more intentionally toward facilitation of learning. The College of Mount St. Joseph in Cincinnati, Ohio, established in 1920 by the Sisters of Charity, is a small institution with 2,200 students in a variety of academic and professional programs. This article presents the story of the College of Mount St. Joseph which has evolved from what was originally perceived as a few minor problems with the core curriculum to a complete reenvisioning of learning and assessment. Lessons learned from the challenges and successes of the last five years about transformation to a learning-centered paradigm are also presented. (Contains 4 notes.)
