Faculty Collaboration: Creating Multidisciplinary Learning Communities
Thomson, Alexander
Community College Enterprise, v13 n2 p27-38 Fall 2007
Learning communities are a growing tool in use at colleges and universities around the country. In large part, these communities have been created in the hope that they will increase interaction among students and teach them to apply knowledge in meaningful ways. In addition to generating student interaction, learning communities should strive to bring faculty together in collaborative settings. We should ask ourselves: how do faculty fit into the learning community? In a case study the author reflects upon his experience as a faculty member in a large multidisciplinary learning community. Recommendations provide guidance to those who are looking to develop teaching/classroom linkages with other departments on their campuses.
