Beyond the Beyond: Acting on the Learning-Centered College

Workshop presentation by Jim Nichols

“Beyond lip-service: An operational definition of "learning-centered" college” was published in Innovative Higher Education in May 2008 by members of COLT.  It was the result of work going back to 2004, including the conduct and analysis of focus group interviews with students and faculty at SUNY Oswego.  One outcome of the project has been the wide distribution of the “Meaningful Learning at SUNY Oswego” brochure.
