Fall 2019

Fall 2019 meetings are primarily organized around the teaching teams. Each 50-minute teaching team meeting will include faculty/TA lesson planning and administrative time and semi-structured discussion of ongoing successes and challenges among the entire Learning Community. One meeting time near the end of the quarter will be structured as a focus group to contribute to the evaluation of the Learning Community. During weeks 9-11 of the quarter, we will conduct individual exit interviews with each participant as well as an evaluation survey of undergraduate students participating in the courses taught by Learning Community participants.
