2013-2014 Learning Communities

These discussions are meant to bring together communities of practice across faculty and staff at both Carleton and St. Olaf. They are not training sessions or formal presentations but open-ended discussion on topics of interest to which participants bring their varied expertise and desire to learn. Members of the Carleton community are also welcome to attend the Learning Communities at St. Olaf.

Please fill out our survey

We would love to know your ideas for how to improve the learning communities next year. Please answer these five questions.

  1. The ‘Learning Communities at St. Olaf’ link at the top of the Home page is broken. I think it’s supposed to be ‘http://pages.stolaf.edu/lc/’
