Do learning communities encourage potential STEM majors?
written by Alexis V. Knaub, Jenifer N. Saldanha, Clark R. Coffman, and Charles R. Henderson
Some students enter college with undeclared majors but could be STEM majors with encouragement. One way of encouraging these students is to provide these students with rich, interactive experiences through learning communities dedicated to students with undeclared STEM majors. Although learning communities are designed to be interactive, it is unclear whether they are and if interactions are linked to any outcomes for students. We used social network analysis (SNA) to study first-year student learning community networks for discussion, problem solving, and social reasons. Using chi-square tests, we also examined whether learning community network behaviors are linked to any outcomes. Results show that students have ties. However, in-degree centrality, a measure of how many respondents select an individual, does not have any relationship with the examined outcomes.
