Keywords:Higher Educatin, Learning Communities, Corporate Partnerships, Community Partnerships
AbstractIn learning communities, real world, community connections often inform the curriculum. They provide the learning structure and communal face to take on large public concerns. In learning communities, however, the learning process (e.g., of collaboration, responsibility, initiative) is often as important to student development as learning specific disciplinary content. In the best of models students learn the process of collaborative work with peers, faculty, and community entities. They develop the ability to embrace, not fear, ideas that are different from one's own.
