Teaching Roundtable - First Year Seminar


What:  Teaching Roundtable – First Year Seminar

Who:   First Year Seminar Committee

Where:  UB 231/232

When: Wednesday, March 6, 11:30-12:30

First Year Seminar has undergone some changes in recent year, particularly incorporating a more intentional writing element. During this session, members of the First Year Seminar committee along with faculty members who have piloted FYS courses with the revised writing component will discuss the nuts and bolts of teaching writing in a FYS course: how they worked to scaffold assignments, how they ran peer review, etc.  This discussion is appropriate for all faculty teaching FYS courses, and especially pertinent for those teaching writing in FYS for the first time.
