A very interesting question was posted to IHEC Blog's Facebook page yesterday that I think readers will find of interest and might want to add their thoughts. Lori Jacobs asked followers to share their thoughts on the following question: "What does the term 'learning community' mean in different cultures?"
I think it's a great question and one I had not thought about nor had an answer. My exposure to learning communities is limited to the living learning communities some housing systems have implemented. My wife has worked in undergraduate student housing for nearly 20 years and we lived in the residence halls/dorms for our first nine years of marriage and this is where I was able to observe these types of learning communities in action (as an outside observer). I'm still trying to gather my thoughts on Lori's question.
What are your thoughts?
