我们的目标:

学术的集成

Learning Communities connect multiple courses to guide students in making connections between different fields of study, which is the basis of meaningful learning. You will also apply what you learn in the classroom to real-world situations through field experiences, 案例研究, 以及其他实践活动. You will also have the opportunity to showcase your LC work and gain professional presentation experience at a Celebration of Learning event in the SUB Ballroom.

Research shows that studying with a group increases success, so we’ve made that easy for you. Your 同伴导师 offer over 70 study sessions per week that you and your friends can join to figure out different ways to solve problems like “What do I do with these textbooks?” and “How can I use my class notes to do really well in this class?”

社会融合

Your 同伴导师 are also there for you socially. They will keep you up-to-date on what’s happening around campus and invite you to be a part of what makes college fun. 作为一年级学生, you help your Hacienda win the First-Year Competitions by being active in social events. Which Hacienda will win the traveling trophy this year? 作为继续学习的学生, you continue your Hacienda involvement by taking the lead planning events and encouraging first-year students to join in the fun.

个人集成

Your Integrative Seminar (iSeminar) course is the place to develop not only your academic and social integration but also to focus on your personal growth on a deeper level. In iSeminar you’ll consider things like what’s the best career for you, what major and minor should you select to learn what you want to learn, how to set goal that you can keep, and what to do about your behaviors that aren’t helping you meet your goals. iSeminar is the place to figure things out in a safe space — you have your instructors, 同行, and 同伴导师 there to help you problem solve!

什么是学习型社区(LC)?

澳门十大正规网投平台’s First-Year Experience Learning Communities (FYE-LCs) create learning experiences based on what research shows about how students learn best and how you become successful in college. Because meaningful learning involves making connections between a variety of topics, our FYE-LCs connect multiple courses to guide you in relating different subjects. You also apply what you learn in the classroom to “real-world” situations through field experiences, 案例研究, 以及其他“动手”活动. The LC faculty work together with a Peer Mentor and adviser to support your success and create an enjoyable college experience. A learning community is about Fun, Friends, Support, and Success!

What is the structure of a Learning Community (LC)? 

The typical LC connects three courses together. Two courses are in the core or a major/minor, 包括任何相关实验室, and the other course is Integrative Seminar (iSeminar), which provides a community space for problem solving.

Your LC is determined based on who you are and what you like;

Icon,我对文化感兴趣.

all the same students are in the three courses with you so you make friends with 同行 who share your interests;

文化是有趣的!

the faculty work together to help you make connections; and a peer mentor and adviser are linked to the LC to support you in your success.

Icon, Peer Mentor, Professor, and Advisors are here to assist you.

Each LC is part of a “Highlands Hacienda,” a group of 4-5 LCs that share a common brand and goal to win the “First-Year Competitions.” This structure makes it easy to build relationships, enjoy your first year as Highlands Cowboys/Cowgirls, and make connections around campus.
