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?
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.
