You could write a grant and use the money to form a consortium of
colleges interested
in establishing learning communities. Then the consortium could offer
its members a
series of workshops lead by some of the big names, like Jean MacGregor,
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
Regional Learning Communities Consortium near Monterey, Ca. on Oct.
2003(sorry it is scheduled for next year).For more information about
the conference
and the consortium:

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.

My goal in life is to be the kind of person my rabbit
thinks I am. However on weekends, to let off steam,
I participate in full-contact rabbit wrastling.
