Summary
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the processes and practices of teachers in learning communities in an urban/suburban midwestern community college district contributed to faculty professional development. A case study was used as the research design for this study. The study indicated that teaching in learning communities positively affected teachers' self-perception, their perception of students, colleagues, and of teaching and learning. The study indicated that the conversation in learning communities contributed to shared connection among teachers and students. The study indicated how teachers negotiated discipline boundaries, constructed knowledge and developed their professional practice. Future research should focus on how teachers create a learning community for themselves when they are teaching in learning communities, how teaching in learning communities affects part-time teachers, and how gender and race/ethnicity may impact the experience of teachers in learning communities
