Metropolitan Universities, v19 n2 p18-31 2008
One of the greatest difficulties facing learning community programs at urban non-residential colleges and universities is the challenge of promoting communication and collaboration among faculty from different disciplines. In this article, the authors, a learning communities coordinator and a learning communities faculty team member, describe and reflect on the outcomes of a semester-long faculty development seminar designed to facilitate the exploration of common learning goals and the development of integrative learning activities and assignments.
