Opportunities to get to know students in small groups and supportive seminars are a part of the FYO design. A time, space, and setting for students and teachers to speak and listen to one another are also pieces of a successful mentoring blueprint. This workshop is an opportunity for faculty to share their strategies and experiences as mentors. Bring your seminar recollections, suggestions, or proposals for mentoring FYO students. There will be time to examine success stories and perhaps ask questions about plans gone awry. A mentoring relationship begun in an FYO may well last well beyond the semester. Student and teacher are the richer for that outcome. Details
