This working group is intended to facilitate continued discussion and action on developing and improving Learning Communities. Subscribe to this group and receive updates on new resources related to this topic. You can also participate by sharing your ideas, posting existing resources, or collaborating with others in this group to develop and disseminate needed resources and tools. We encourage participation from anyone interested in improving undergraduate education. Please join us! Learning Communities are used by many STEP projects as a strategy for improving retention , particularly during the freshman and sophomore years. Although there are many approaches to learning communities, all involve linking courses or coursework together to provide greater curricular coherence and increased interaction between students and faculty. Learning communities may be "residential" or "non-residential", but in either case they are designed to bring together and develop bonds among students with common academic interests.

This is a forum for exchange and discussion regarding the future of STEP projects and is intended to accompany and extend the March 5th Wednesday night Forum at the STEP 2014 meeting. With the suspension of STEP and the implementation of IUSE, this is a critical time to reflect upon what we have learned from implementing STEP projects, and use this collective knowledge to guide future decisions. In this working group, we will have a facilitated conversation to identify vital features of STEP we have found to be essential to the success of our projects, features that we would like to see sustained and strongly supported in the future.The outcome will be a framework for a white paper or document that compiles our collective best practices from STEP and makes recommendations for future funding priorities. To contribute to this effort, please add your ideas and suggestions withing the appropriate discussion thread below. Thanks!!!
