A special note from the Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education
The Washington Center for Improving Undergraduate Education is planning a special issue of its Learning Community Research and Practice journal, which will explore the how learning communities have adapted and thrived during COVID-19. This workshop presents an excellent opportunity to start thinking about documenting how your learning community has been affected by the pandemic and how Evergreen’s unique learning community model has supported resilience, community building, and learning.
We highly encourage Evergreen faculty and staff to consider submitting a manuscript to the journal. You can find more information on author guidelines at https://washingtoncenter.evergreen.edu/lcrpjournal/. The special issue will be published in Spring 2021.
