The evolution of learning communities in higher education during the last decade is one of the most exciting, academically challenging, student friendly developments in years. Learning communities are academically challenging and extremely rewarding.
At Buffalo State, a learning community is a block of courses that explores a complex theme through four or five classes. The faculty work to demonstrate how their particular course reflects the theme and connects to learning in other courses. Students take all of these courses together and form friendships that last beyond graduation.
Equally as important, students learn material at a deeper level because they spend more time discussing ideas and working to master the lessons.
