The SFASU Learning Networks program is designed to enhance:
Linked first-year classes (previously called
"Freshman Interest Groups") can help students new to campus make the
transition to university life by giving them a network of fellow
students to replace the support system they left at home. Inter-disciplinary learning linked courses
can help students see the connections between the different types of
knowledge provided by a university education.
Teaching innovation and faculty development
Linked courses can create opportunities for
working with faculty from other disciplines and gaining new insights
into their teaching and research interests.
Given the value of each of these objectives, we hope to encourage
linked courses for any of these reasons. The goal of the Learning
Networks program is to facilitate rather than direct faculty efforts.
The coordinator's role is to help faculty find the
best way bringing
together students and disciplines. You come up with new
ideas and we'll help with the logistics.
Faculty might consider any
number of arrangements between linked classes. Linked courses are not
team-taught courses, although they might include team teaching. Often
linked courses have shared reading, written assignments, or exams.
Courses at any level may be linked.
