What is a Learning Community class?
LSC-CyFair Learning Community (LC) is a part of the Learning Signature. LC classes offer students an innovative and exciting way to learn through the integration of two courses from different disciplines which are taught separately, but focus on a common theme or question. This provides students with an interdisciplinary perspective and the ability to apply knowledge in new situations, while fostering intellectual interactions with other students and faculty throughout the process.
So, will I have two instructors?
Yes! Your Learning Community classes will be taught by 2 professors from each discipline that create the LC.
How am I graded?
Each LC course has its own parameters, but most likely there will be ”community” projects that are graded by both instructors. Some LC courses may have individual assessments or projects that focus only on one or the other discipline. Students receive grades for both courses.
What are the benefits of enrolling in a Learning Community?
Why NOT take 2 courses at 1 time? NO extra cost!
