First-Year Seminar Course Design

This workshop is specifically for instructors who wish to develop or revise a First-Year Seminar based on the Core criteria and with the support and feedback from colleagues. During this workshop, faculty will develop or revise a syllabus and assignment structure for their First-Year  Seminar based on key course design principles. We will also be discussing best practices as well as experiences and suggestions from FYS instructors during 2013-14. This hands-on workshop will offer the opportunity to discuss and work together with colleagues when developing the course outline.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Breakfast will be available at 8:30am. Lunch will be provided at the end of the workshop. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.
