University 101 Programs


Fall Semester Support

There are multiple opportunities for instructors to receive support during the fall semester.

UNIV 101 Faculty Meetings

Faculty meetings allow UNIV 101 instructors to share ideas, learn from each other and participate in the governance of University 101. They are also an important opportunity for the University 101 Programs staff to provide instructors with important announcements, communicate and clarify new expectations, and discuss emerging issues and trends.

Brown Bag Lunches

These small-group meetings are held throughout the fall to provide support for instructors. These informal gatherings allow instructors to share best practices, seek assistance with challenging situations and connect with colleagues who may be facing similar issues. Bring your lunch, and join us for some great discussion!

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. Workshops will be offered throughout the fall and will be facilitated by University 101 Programs staff members or instructors.

U101 in Action!

U101 in Action! is an opportunity for instructors to see how other University 101 instructors address the UNIV 101 learning outcomes, co-teach and interact with their students. Multiple section types, taught by high-performing instructors, are open to other instructors to observe. Instructors interested in seeing U101 in Action! can sign up through ScheduleCenter (available August 2019).

Colleague Clusters

Colleague Clusters offer instructors a way to network and foster academic community. These are small groups of five to seven instructors who can serve as a support network for each other. Clusters share ideas, successes and resources with each other and communicate in a variety of ways, including face-to-face, GroupMe and hybrid options. Sign-up information will be available in June.

Other Fall Workshops

Occasionally the University 101 Programs staff will host workshops throughout the fall semester in response to current needs and trends affecting instructors.
