Learning Communities & Structured Learning


What is a WSCC Learning Community?

A WSCC Learning Community (LC) is a group of students (usually one 9:30 course) who participate in organized group-learning outside of the classroom.

What do students in Learning Communities do?Learning Communities Logo

Students in a Learning Community, or LC, attend “community” events together. LC students share common experiences centered on their academics and community, achieve a deeper understanding of their course’s subject matter, build relationships with one another, and learn together.
In a Learning Community, students connect with their Wallace State community, faculty, and peers by attending or virtually-attending campus and community events together, and processing their experiences as part of their class. 

Why take an LC?

  • LC activities make learning personal. You’ll see how to use what you learn in the “real world”.
  • You’ll use what you learn. See first bullet.
  • You’ll explore course material in a more in-depth way.
  • You’ll attend campus and off-campus events as part of your class.
  • You’ll learn a lot about WSCC, your classmates, and yourself.Students Photo 1
