Professors present at American Psychological Association meeting

Steve Jenkins and Laurence Nolan presented at the annual APA meeting in Honolulu about the senior learning community in psychology at Wagner College. While many undergraduate programs (79%) have senior capstone experiences, it appears that Wagner is unique in offering the capstone in a learning community in combination with field experience. One attendee from the Society for the Teaching of Psychology noted that Wagner was ahead of other colleges in paying particular attention to supporting student transition from school to career.

The psychology professors have also co-authored a chapter about the senior LC in the book Discipline-Centered Learning Communities: Creating Connections Among Students, Faculty, and Curricula edited by K. Buch and K. E. Barron and published by Jossey-Bass.
