Then the consortium could offer its members a series of workshops lead by some of the big names, like Jean MacGregor, Barbara Leigh Smith, John O'Connor, Joyce Hardiman and Vincent Tinto. I know its possible because it has already been done by a group at De Anza College in Cupertino, Ca. ; V ) Or you could see all these people in one place at the Conference of the California Regional Learning Communities Consortium near Monterey, Ca. on Oct. 29-31, 2003(sorry it is scheduled for next year).For more information about the conference and the consortium: http://www.cal-rlcc.org/announce.html and http://www.cal-rlcc.org/index.html Since the Fall of 2001 at Hartnell College we have offered a learning community of ESL, Math and Counseling called The Language of Math. The results have been very promising. The model was selected as a runner up for the 2002 Bellwether Award.
