Overview

"An exemplar of how to analyze and study the impact of a college on student development."—Wilbert J. McKeachie, professor emeritus, University of Michigan

"Powerful organizing concepts for generating learning that lasts."—Arthur W. Chickering, visiting distinguished faculty, Vermont College of Norwich University

Today's colleges and universities face increasing pressure to develop programs and curricula that will teach students how to handle life's unexpected challenges. Learning That Lasts explores what it means for learners to transform themselves and for educators to foster essential skills for learning, leading, teamwork, and adapting with integrity in college and beyond. The authors draw from two decades of longitudinal studies on student learning in the acclaimed curriculum at Alverno College—and on leading educational theories—to present a theory of deep and durable learning. They include practical strategies for enabling students to cultivate integrative and expansive capabilities across a lifetime. They also draw on their own and other colleges' experiences to develop concrete suggestions for how faculty and academic staff can work together to forge effective curricula, design innovative programs, implement key institutional goals, and renegotiate the college culture.
