Supporting and Enhancing Learning on Campus : Effective Pedagogy Beyond the Classroom
This book confronts the assumption that learning only happens in the classroom. College students learn through both formal and informal activities in a range of campus and community spaces; supporting these educational opportunities allows for more meaningful intellectual, social, and emotional learning. This book provides the theoretical and pedagogical framework for removing traditional learning boundaries to create collaborative, engaged, and effective learning experiences. Drawing from case studies and theory, this book helps student affairs and higher education professionals reflect on and develop broader learning environments that promote development and success for all students.
