Immersion - FYS/RA Model: Greenwich Village [Event Flyer]
Presented By: Mary Jane Treacy, Ph.D., Spanish and Women's Studies, Simmons College
This workshop allows faculty members to experience a shortened version of a highly effective and engaging pedagogy used in a large number of First-Year Seminars and other classes at other institutions. This pedagogy can be used in the form presented or with variations as the unifying experience for a First-Year Seminars or Rhetorical Arts class spanning most of the semester or for a limited number of sessions only. It involves close reading and critical analysis of primary sources, as well as careful writing and several key public speaking activities. The use of this pedagogy in the context of a First-Year Seminar will be discussed based on example syllabi.
Detailed documentation and support material will be made available during the workshops. Participants will be provided with individualized material before the workshop as preparation allowing faculty members to experience the FYS/RA model also from a student perspective. The pedagogy showcased in this module is one that can be adapted also to other classes – the module may therefore also be of interest for faculty members teaching other classes (not FYS/RA). For details about the Greenwich Village, 1913 see here.
Participation in this workshop requires attendance of both modules (morning and afternoon) on the same day. Seats in this workshop are limited - early registration recommended.
Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. No drop-ins. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.
Upon participation confirmation, participants will receive a copy of the material for this workshop, including a copy of the book with the course material and individualized material with instructions for the specific role each participant will assume during the workshop.
Breakfast will be served at 8:30 am; lunch and refreshments will be provided during the workshop. Lunch will be a working lunch - expect to continue discussing and developing your project during lunch around noon.
