2006 National Survey of First-Year Seminars: Continuing Innovations in the Collegiate Curriculum. The First-Year Experience Monograph Series No. 51
Tobolowsky, Barbara F.
National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition
Since 1988, the National Resource Center has conducted a national survey every three years to gather information about the nature and extent of first-year seminars on American college campuses. The findings from the 2006 survey administration have been reorganized to make it easier to find information of interest with major chapters focusing on seminar characteristics, instruction and instructor training, and course objectives and related assessment efforts. With more than 200 tables offering analysis of survey responses, Monograph No. 51 offers the most detailed picture of first-year seminars to date. Following an introduction (Barbara F. Tobolowsky), contents include: (1) An Historical Perspective on First-Year Seminars (Dana Fish Saunders and Jonathan Romm); (2) Methodology and Institutional Characteristics (Asheley Schryer, Angela Griffin, and Barbara F. Tobolowsky); (3) The First-Year Seminar Characteristics (Angela Griffin, Jonathan Romm, and Barbara F. Tobolowsky); (4) Seminar Instruction and Training (Barbara F. Tobolowsky and Angela Griffin); (5) Course Objectives and Assessment (Angela Griffin and Barbara F. Tobolowsky); and (6) Summary of Selected Findings (Barbara F. Tobolowsky). Two appendixes follow: (1) 2006 National Survey of First-Year Seminars; and (2) List of Participating Institutions. Contributor information is also included. (Contains 215 tables; individual chapters contain references.)
