Calling on the experiences of veteran FYO faculty, participants in this interactive session will examine UGA’s First-Year Odyssey’s program goals as well as best practices in how to design and structure a successful FYO course. This session, moderated by Chase Hagood, offers faculty “best of" experiences and advice on how to begin an FYO seminar as well as a concise review of research on “day one” practices in small seminar classes. Faculty will leave with practical assignments and goals for their FYO course as well as a group-developed list of "top 10 things to do” with FYO students. Details

For many university faculty, teaching a large lecture course can present a host of challenges from participation to effectively employing involved, active-learning strategies. However, the small class setting can also prove equally as daunting including the perils of introversion, lackluster discussions, and disenchanted students. This interactive session will evaluate some of the recent literature on learner-centered approaches to instruction as well as practical tips on how to achieve student engagement in the small class setting.
