Interested in being a part of a program that will help shape the educator you become after graduation? Our Living-Learning Community may be right for you!
The Education Living-Learning Community is a program that places 24 students from the Dwight Schar College of Education together in a living-learning community during their freshman year. Students also participate in a cohort where they:
- Connect to Ashland University
- Identify as future educators
- Develop a strong sense of citizenship, community, and purpose
- Engage in self-directed learning behaviors
- Become life-long learners
Students will take the following courses together along with 10 to 12 credits of additional coursework during their first semester:
- EDFN 130: Introduction to Education
- EDEC 140: Phonics in English Language
What are the Benefits?
In addition to living in the same residence hall as other education students - which provides an immediate support system during their critical first year - students will also gain:
- Better connections with other students
- Enhanced participation in campus-related activities
- Stronger connections to the campus/surrounding community
- Easy access to other students in your major
- Increased interaction with faculty and staff
- An appreciation of how academic disciplines are interrelated
- Better academic performance due to deep, high-quality, and substantive learning
Students will also learn how to work in teams, will take classes during prime class hours, and are more likely to graduate on time.
