Using Living and Learning Communities To Enrich Students’ Intellectual and Personal College Experiences [Event flyer]
Living and Learning Communities (LLCs) are increasingly recognized as being a means for enhancing students’ engagement, retention, sense of connectedness, learning, and overall college experience. PEAP, the Psychology Department’s LLC, is one of seven LLCs at LMU. Currently PEAP is in its fourth year; after three consecutive cohorts, the department took one year to revise the program extensively, based on data collected with the previous cohorts. The program has been redesigned in order to more intentionally 1) bridge students’ intellectual, academic, and living (social) experiences; 2) enculturate students to be intellectually energized and engaged; and 3) create a college environment in which students feel deeply connected to each other, their department and the university In this presentation, we’ll share the lessons we learned and the strategies and activities we have developed to enrich the PEAP program and our students’ experience of college.
This presentation is part of Vandana Thadani's CTE Faculty Associate Project on Learning and Teaching Environments that Foster Transfer.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or x85866.
