University 101 Programs

  • Teaching teams seated at a table attending a course planning workshop

Course Planning Workshop

Instructors, peer leaders and graduate leaders meet in April to share and learn about effective strategies for achieving common course goals and learning outcomes.


Teaching teams receive important information about factors leading to a successful seminar experience, as well as the latest on new policies, requirements and recommendations. They will have the chance to exchange ideas and resources with colleagues before beginning to plan their syllabus.

These workshops are a great opportunity for co-instructors to begin developing teaching relationships and planning for their fall responsibilities.
