National Online Survey of Students’ Experiences of Learning in Learning Communities

"Each year, a two-page report on highlights from survey administrations is sent to participating institutions. Information includes number of colleges and universities participating, number of student responses, and the variety of learning communities students were enrolled in from pre-college to college-level studies.

 

The report also includes faculty activities or behaviors reported by students to happen “often” or “very often,” notably exceptional student outcomes or behaviors as well as what “sometimes” or “never” occurs in learning community classrooms according to students. Survey findings which relate directly to integrative learning are detailed as are students’ experiences in learning communities compared to other classes."

Jo McClure's insight:
Article noted that students who participated in learning communities were more successful, not only in their current course, but in future courses AND when the going got tough.  The impact of community in the online classroom cannot be understated.

Remember feeling nervous before starting your first day on the job? You may have experienced butterflies in your stomach, had questions about expectations, or concerns about learning the rules and finding information. Students feel the same way with a new professor, regardless if the class is face-to-face or online. With technology, you can reduce new-class jitters and get your students on track for success.

You lead class discussions. And there are times when you need to sit down with a student individually. This is where the authentic relationships are developed and maintained. The same need exists in an online course.
Jo McClure's insight:

Anyone can create an online course.  What makes them standout above the rest is the teacher that makes personal connections with students and interweaves the course content in a relevant, engaging way.

 

Building online relationships with, and between students, is CRITICAL!
