Upcoming Events at NIU
- Apply for Fall 2013 Themed Learning Communities
Applications are being accepted on an ongoing basis for Themed Learning Communities (TLCs) for the Fall of 2013. TLCs consist of two or three courses taken in conjunction in order to examine a common theme across disciplines like the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Faculty members create assignments that require students to draw on concepts from the other TLC classes for an enhanced, integrative learning experience.
In addition, students in TLCs have the opportunity to interact with a Peer Leader, who is an upper-class students that serves as a mentor for each TLC via attending courses, arranging study sessions, and helping students get acclimated on campus. TLCs also have the opportunity to apply for funding for experiential learning, including field trips that incorporate class concepts in real life (e.g., visiting Kishwaukee Community Hospital as a part of the Exploring Health Majors TLC).
We invited colleges and departments to propose TLCs for Fall 2013. Click here for a proposal form.
