Learning communities are understood in a variety of ways. This track examines the characteristics of learners, communities that support learning, and principles and methods of assessment that address structures, outcomes, and the overall value of learning. Participants will be expected to reflect on the topics beforehand by reviewing specified information in advance of the retreat. At the retreat, participants will interact with colleagues to critically analyze concepts and models of learning communities, and to apply their analyses to involvement in the Teaching and Learning with Technology Collaborative.
