A large research university developed a program that incorporates multiple forms of student-centered programming with a focus on research. Learning Environment and Academic Research Network (LEARN) is a living-learning community wherin first-year students live in the same residence hall, take specific classes together, work with mentors, and engage in a 12-week mentored research apprenticeship. LEARN aims to recruit first-generation and underrepresented...  [view full summary]
A large research university developed a program that incorporates multiple forms of student-centered programming with a focus on research. Learning Environment and Academic Research Network (LEARN) is a living-learning community wherin first-year students live in the same residence hall, take specific classes together, work with mentors, and engage in a 12-week mentored research apprenticeship. LEARN aims to recruit first-generation and underrepresented students. Such a program requires input and participation from numerous stakeholders. This article provides reviews of the development implementation and lessons learned from starting the program.

Research and Teaching: A New "Class" of Undergraduate Professors: Examining Teaching Beliefs and Practices of Science Faculty With Education Specialties
By: Tracie Addy, Patricia Simmons, Grant E. Gardner, and Jennifer Albert
Grade Level: College
This articles highlights the teaching beliefs and classroom practices of a sample of science faculty with educational specialties (SFES) to promote the importance of understanding these attributes in faculty embedded within disciplinary departments involved in improving science teaching and learning. We found that the teaching beliefs of SFES in the sample were consistent with student-centered pedagogies and their classroom practices were more transitional.
