Abstract

The authors summarize findings of research, examining the relationship between student interaction in first-year seminar courses and instructor techniques and interaction. The study results indicate that first-year students differ significantly from upperclass students and somewhat from their instructors when reporting the effects of certain teaching techniques on participation. Students and their instructors reported higher levels of interaction in first-year seminar classrooms than in other first-year or upper-level classes.
