A Librarian and an English Professor combined their Community College classes into a learning community. Unlike most such collaborations, the two classes were scheduled back-to-back, blending their syllabi into one. The class was conducted as an integrated whole, with Information Literacy components scattered throughout the semester to facilitate learning the material at the most opportune time within the English curriculum. Greater student success resulted. This PowerPoint presentation will cover insights gained in collaborating with another faculty member to create a learning community, obstacles that may arise, and why this can be successful. Information handouts will be provided.
