Professional Development

The First-Year Seminar (FYS) program offers multiple opportunities to learn with and from other FYS faculty. If you are interested in proposing a new FYS course and/or submitting an existing course for the FYS advisory group’s review as part of the new General Education implementation (starting Fall 2024), you are encouraged to first attend a one-hour session, “(Re)Proposing and Revising Your FYS Course for the New Gen Ed,” during one of the following dates/times:

  • Thursday, October 5, 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM
  • Friday, October 6, 12 PM – 1 PM
  • Thursday, January 25, 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM
  • Friday, January 26, 12 PM – 1 PM

There are two goals for the hour:

 To provide tips for faculty on how to (re)propose your FYS;

  1. To share changes to the program under the new General Education Curriculum.

Each of the above sessions will be held in person in the Faculty Hub. Sign up here.
