Learning Communities Offered
Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) has announced that it will offer paired learning community courses at its Dyersburg campus and the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County during the upcoming fall semester with classes beginning Aug. 27. Learning communities are class pairings that form connections between the content in two courses. Research shows that this method of teaching helps engage students and improves learning.
Learning communities offered this fall include Learning Support Reading and Fundamentals of Communication; Learning Support Writing and English Composition I; and Support for Math 1530 and Introductory Statistics.
These course pairings are designed to increase chances for academic success by providing students with a unique learning experience that is supportive and more personal. Some assignments will cross over between the courses in order to promote collaboration with classmates and instructors.
Students interested in signing up for a learning community should make an appointment to speak with their advisor. An appointment can be made online at www.dscc.edu by selecting either the Future Students or Current Students tab and then clicking on “Make an Appointment.” Students may also contact a One Stop Center at 731-286-3350 (Dyersburg), 731-855-1419 (Trenton) or 901-475-3100 (Covington).
