Integrative Learning: Mapping the Terrain
Mary Taylor Huber and Pat Hutchings. Washington, DC: Association of American Colleges and Universities, 2005.
One of the great challenges in higher education is to help students integrate their learning. The capacity to make connections is essential to the conduct of personal, professional, and civic life. It is also, arguably, more difficult than ever to achieve, as students transfer among institutions and struggle to balance work and study. Indeed, many basic structures of academic life encourage them to see their courses as isolated requirements. This paper explores the need for integrative learning today, as well as its longer tradition and rationale within a vision of liberal education.

Integrative Learning: Opportunities to Connect was a national project sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities and The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Aimed at promoting integrative learning in undergraduate education, this 3-year initiative engaged ten campuses in developing and testing strategies to foster students' abilities to integrate their learning over time. This report makes the project's work available to other campuses interested in helping students pursue their learning in more intentional, connected ways.
