IDS-1010T is taught in a collaborative classroom where desks are easily moveable so students can meet in small and large group settings.
Students are actively engaged during each class period through group meetings and presentations to the class.
Students use resources such as guest speakers, new media and field experience to develop their research projects.
Students respond to reading materials individually through journal writing and collaboratively through small group discussions.
Ultimately, Students create a research product that will be presented publicly.
What is the First Year Seminar?
