Participants in this interactive seminar will examine best practices in how to design and structure a successful FYO course experience. Structured like a true workshop, participants can expect to make progress in the development of their FYO seminars. Attendees are encouraged to come with drafts of syllabi, past assignments, etc. Notions of backward design will be central to this session, and faculty will leave with practical pre-planning steps for developing and finalizing their FYO. This will include practical teaching strategies that are ideal to employ with FYO students.
In this talk, Mark proposes a potentially important difference across individuals in the qualitative characteristics of what they learn from conceptual training experiences. He suggests that during instruction, some learners focus on acquiring the particular exemplars and responses associated with the exemplars, whereas other learners attempt to abstract underlying regularities reflected in the particular exemplars linked to an appropriate response (termed "rule learners").
