University 101 Programs




Lessons from the Road Workshops

The purpose of these workshops is to give University 101 instructors the opportunity to experience and participate in the effective facilitation of tried and true lesson plans, to learn about a new activity to add to their toolboxes, and to discuss effective facilitation techniques. Workshops will be offered throughout the year and will be facilitated by University 101 Programs staff or University 101 instructors.

Upcoming Workshops:
