Transcript of UNO Academic Learning Communities
Why academic learning communities?
In light of national, regional, and local priorities and pressures, current levels of student retention and persistence are unacceptable.
New changes in the organization of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs have laid the foundation to build strategies to increase student success.
What is an
Academic Learning Community?
Academic Learning Communities
employ high-impact practices
Intentional links between courses
Instruction teams & Faculty development
Students Collaborate and learn
Integrated experiences & assignments
PROCESS FOR FORMING AN ACADEMIC LEARNING COMMUNITY
An institutional strategy designed to enhance student success.
Groups of students with shared academic interest or experience who live together where possible, learn through at least one shared class, connect to students/peer mentors & faculty through exclusive activities and events.
Building on successful models
Using existing programs that have enhanced student success (TLC and Goodrich) should more easily facilitate the development of other Academic Learning Communities.
Data supports increased student success
