The traditional college experience has changed from the post high school student engaged and living within a peer environment to something different. While the traditional model still exists, the state of higher education today has resulted in a wider array of what is considered the postsecondary student: age, enrolled status, and variety of access (2 or 4 year entrance) occur in a wider variety. This video session was conducted at the Engineering Technology Summit in 2013 among Purdue College of Technology and Ivy Tech faculty and students. Dawn Laux and Michele Summers, both Purdue faculty and learning community coordinators, describe a virtual learning community (VLC) and how a VLC supports student success in a Pathway model of higher education.
