Previous literature has shown that the use of learning communities in higher education enhances student academic performance, social engagement and retention. Much of the literature on learning communities has focused on students attending two or more courses that may be linked by learning goals, assignments or projects. This study examines the students’ academic performance and perceived self-efficacy in the learning community – “Get Active- Be Healthy” that links a lecture-based health course with an experiential learning, physical activity course.
