The Academy Experience:

A Plan for Integrated Education

slide2
Imagine:

Students aren’t just

enrolled at a community college.

Students are members of

Queensborough academies.

slide3

The world of higher education

has traditionally been called

academia or academe or the academy,

the place of scholarship

and dissemination of learning

to new generations of students.

slide4

At Queensborough, academies are cohorts of students by curriculum.

slide5

Each academy has three dimensions:

  • An educational philosophy
  • A place for learning
  • A community of learners
slide6
The Academy has an

educational philosophy:

An integrated educational experience incorporating academic and social connectivity to their curricula, the college community, and their peers will enable students to develop and apply critical lifelong learning skills.

slide7
The Academy

is a place:

The designated space for the academy is the focus for academy activities, where faculty, students, and academic support staff can engage one another in learning.

slide8
The Academy

is a community of learners:

Curricular cohorts of students partner with faculty and academic support staff to achieve learning objectives and to enable the completion of degree requirements.

slide9
In a QCC academy, students are actively engaged in the literature and discourse, underlying fundamentals, and overarching philosophies specific to their own discipline:

Engineering Tech

Process Analysis

Business

Numeracy / Comparative Thinking

Mathematics

Numeracy / Problem-Solving

Liberal Arts

Critical Analysis / Interpretation

Sciences

Scientific Method

Biology / Nursing

Vocabulary Building / Interpersonal Skills

Education

Socratic Method

slide10
A degree from the Academy means:

Students have demonstrated both fundamental and more specialized competencies in preparation for the world of work or the continuation of their academic pursuits.

What is Integrated Education?

Linked courses reinforcing students’ identity in their Academies

Establishing a solid foundation for coping with academic rigors

Writing-to-learn as a critical thinking mechanism

The blueprint for, and archive of, students’ academic planning

Academic support outside the classroom:

tutoring, and information and technology literacy

Exploration, assessment, and modification of best practices in the teaching/learning partnerships

The doorway to partnership

Competencies

Through the integrated education model, students will be able, at graduation, to:

  • Integrate knowledge and
  • skills in students’ programs
  • of study.
  • Differentiate between and
  • make informed decisions
  • about issues based on
  • multiple value systems.
  • Work collaboratively in
  • diverse groups to
  • accomplish learning
  • objectives.
  • Communicate effectively through reading, writing, listening and speaking.
  • Use analytical reasoning to identify issues and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions.
  • Reason quantitatively and mathematically.
  • Use information management and technology skills effectively.

They achieve proficiency in

  • 3 critical literacies…

Numeracy / Mathematical Literacy

Information Literacy

Social / Interpersonal Literacy

Imagine the Possibilities!

Members of Queensborough academies don’t just meet credit requirements:

  • They acquire unique, discipline-specific
  • perspectives
  • They apply these perspectives and critical

Imagine This Result!

QCC students leave the academy

better prepared for global citizenship

as they transition to the workplace

or continue their academic pursuits.
