Learning Communities

Learning Communities are two or three linked courses that share common themes to create interactive learning partnerships between courses. Students enrolled in these grouped courses become a sharing community; along with their instructors, they collaborate and learn together. Learning Communities launch the educational career for entering first-year students at UIW. Typically, an entering first year student's first semester schedule is built around a learning community cluster of two integrated courses. Learning community offerings satisfy first semester General Education requirements, Honors Program tracks, and discipline-specific clusters for students who have already decided upon their majors.
