Welcome to the Journal website!
We are pleased to introduce the Learning Communities Journal (ISSN 1946-0597), a peer-reviewed journal published by and for faculty, faculty developers, and administrators at universities and two- and four-year colleges to share research about, experiences with, and student and faculty learning through learning communities. The Journal provides a scholarly, written forum for discussion about all areas affecting faculty and student learning communities, and gives community participants the opportunity to share proven, innovative strategies and thoughtful, inspirational insights.
Both print and online subscriptions are available.
Volume 5 (2013) -- The Importance of Learning Community Components
"This issue of the Learning Communities Journal features two articles on student learning communities (SLCs) and four on faculty and professional learning communities (FLCs). The SLC results have important implications for FLCs. Learning communities, whether student or faculty, are made up of design and implementation components whose variations of use influence effectiveness and outcomes."
