Prepping Your FYS: Strategies for Writing and Revising Your FYS Syllabus

Aug 18
8:45 AM - 11:30 AM
University of Richmond, Zoom

Are you currently prepping an FYS course for this fall? Would you like to connect with other FYS instructors, brainstorm ideas for writing-focused classroom activities, and get feedback on your syllabus from colleagues? We invite you to join us for a virtual workshop specifically designed for FYS instructors, "Prepping Your FYS: Strategies for Writing and Revising Your FYS Syllabus."

This workshop will be split into two sessions with a short break in-between – you are welcome to attend one or both sessions:

  • 8:45 - 10:30am: Incorporating writing-to-learn activities into your FYS with special guest, Dr. Michael Reder (Director, Joy Shechtman Mankoff Center for Teaching & Learning at Connecticut College)
  • 10:30-10:45am: Break
  • 10:45-11:30am: FYS Mini-syllabus workshop with Dr. Kylie Korsnack (Educational Developer, Faculty Hub)

Please register here to let us know that you plan to join us. The registration form will ask you to let us know which of the above sessions you plan to attend.

Can't make either session but would still like someone to talk with about your FYS? You can schedule a time to get a recap of the workshop and receive personalized support from a Faculty Hub consultant through an individual consultation.
