Modeling Intentional Communities

In the summer of 2012, ACU’s Monty Lynn, Kent Smith and Brandon Young visited 11 intentional communities in cities spanning North America. They highlighted some of their key findings and suggested ways their research may be useful in helping ACU students explore deeper understandings of community at an Adams Center lunch session back in February. For more information on their work, please visit http://modelingintentionalcommunity.org/.

Science of Learning – Future-Proof Learning: Believing v. Knowing

Do you want your students to –

· Use what they know?
· Want to learn more?
· Persevere when learning gets hard?

These results are more influenced by what students “believe about themselves ” than by what the “know about the content.” Join Bob McKelvain for a discussion of how to help students secure their investment in learning.
