Designed by the University 101 staff and campus partners at the University of
South Carolina, the 12th edition of this resource manual provides instructional
faculty with a how-to guide for designing, managing, teaching, and evaluating
student work in the first-year seminar. The manual includes a detailed discussion of course management that offers suggestions for working with first-year students, designing a syllabus, establishing grading policies, building community in the classroom, and working with a peer leader. Other chapters are keyed to the 10 learning outcomes for this course, drawing on a review of the research and practice literature and approaches that have worked well in the past. Resources for students, suggested assignments, and classroom activities are included throughout. The manual is updated each year based on assessment data, indicating the approaches that were most successful in achieving course outcomes, and can be adapted for use in a variety of campus contexts.
