This winter, working groups in Social Science, Enriched Science and Certificates have been generating plans for future developments in the Learning Communities project. In April, all three groups invited faculty in their respective domains to participate in brainstorming sessions that cast a wide net for ideas related to collaborative teaching and interdisciplinary learning.
More than 60 teachers responded to the invitation, and in 4 different sessions generated more than 400 ideas on how to grow the LC project over the next 5 years. The working groups have been busy sifting and summarizing several small mountains of post-its, with the aim of ensuring each group’s final strategic plan is aligned with teacher input. Plans from each working group will be presented to the Dawson community by the end of the winter semester.
