A Framework for Increasing Housing and Residence Life Staff Capacity and Confidence to Develop and Implement a Residential Curriculum
Stauffer, Christina; Kimmel, Dillon
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v45 n3 p28-41 2019
Successful implementation of a Residential Curriculum Model is dependent on the preparedness and investment of professional staff to design the learning experiences taking place in residence halls. Recent literature urges student affairs educators to embrace approaches which contribute to student learning beyond the classroom. This concept has been embraced by many Housing and Residence Life (HRL) educators as well through the introduction of the curricular approach to learning. However, available resources for educators to actualize a curriculum in the unique settings of their units can be scarce, potentially leaving staff who are responsible for training or authoring curriculums unclear as to where to begin. This article describes the University of Delaware's attempt at designing and implementing a comprehensive professional development series and offers four steps for trainers in HRL units to develop professional staff competence in designing and implementing educational strategies within a Residential Curriculum Model.
