The First-Year Seminar: Designing, Implementing, and Assessing Courses to Support Student Learning and Success
Series Description: “While the first-year seminar is
a common fixture on many American campuses, some institutions are just
beginning to explore this option while others are looking for ways to
revamp an existing course. The First-Year Seminar: Designing, Implementing, and Assessing Courses to Support Student Learning and Success
is designed to assist both efforts. Each volume examines a different
aspect of first-year seminar design or administration and offers
suggestions for practice grounded in research on the seminar, the
literature on teaching and learning, and campus-based examples.
