    Are your faculty workshops nearly empty? Do your teaching tips disappear into the ether? Are your effort to develop a learning community falling flat? Then this session is for you! The First Year Faculty Teaching Academy (FYFTA) has helped new teachers connect with each other, identify campus resources and discover new teaching techniques. The workshop aims to save faculty time and frustration as well as kick start career-long exploration of innovative practice. This session will provide a brief overview of the FYFTA framework, activities, session materials and the research behind it all.

      Hello! I enjoyed sitting in on your session. I really liked the syllabus assignment competition. I remember Jennifer mentioning that your student judges weren’t too thrilled with scavenger hunts. What were some of the assignments and activities that students preferred? And were you student judges undergrads or grad students? Thanks!
