Life Science LLC
The Life Science Living Learning Community (LifeSci LLC) is a residentially based community for students enrolled in BIO152 & BIO153 during the academic year. Students will live in residence in a common community and will be registered in the same tutorial for both BIO152 & BIO153 as a cohort. Participation in the LSLLC will centre upon career clarity, experiential learning & faculty engagement in a supportive Residence community.
The pedagogical approach taken to co-curricular learning and development within the LifeSci LLC will be primarily experiential. By foregrounding experience, participants will be given the chance to be active learners. Utilizing a peer-facilitated approach within a shared living environment, this living-learning community will seek to engage students socially, intellectually and professionally in ways that promote community development, faculty-student interaction, and an appreciation for the various ways in which one’s individual knowing is enhanced when other voices are involved in a learning experience.
The Life Science LLC is a community of students enrolled in BIO152 in the fall term and BIO153 in the winter term. Students interested in wellness and the sciences should apply now!
