The workshops are appropriate for individuals new to learning communities as well as those who seek to reflect on and strengthen their practices. We have been joined in the past by teams from across the nation, from two-year and four-year colleges.
The registration deadline is May 15, 2013, but spaces do fill quickly; we encourage early registration.For more information, contact Marissa Schlesinger, Director of Academic Affairs.
Here are some participant reactions:

"we began to really understand the importance of consistent professional development."
"great to see faculty and administration all on the same page."
"the Kingsborough team did a very good job of defining learning communities and providing a check list of the administrative support that is necessary for a learning community to succeed."
