Teaching and Learning Resource Center

Learning community


A small, cross-disciplinary group of six to eight educators who meet regularly over the course of one academic year to learn together about topics related to teaching and learning. A learning community is designed to be a supportive environment where participants can learn about specific teaching strategies, try out new approaches, and reflect on successes and challenges. 

The learning community model was first developed over 40 years ago at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and is used today at universities across the world.
