During this workshop, faculty will develop a basic syllabus for a First-Year Seminar they intend to teach based on the course criteria for FYS. Based on key course design principles, faculty members will develop an outline of their course satisfying the learning outcomes and defining characteristic of a LMU FYS. This workshop will offer the opportunity to discuss and work together with colleagues when developing the course outline. This workshop should be combined with a FYS Reading and/or Writing module and supplements the Immersion FYS Model modules.

This workshop is a summer course development workshop for new core curriculum courses; grants are available to support course development. This workshop corresponds to one module.

Please direct any questions you may have to teachers@lmu.edu.
