Challenging the First Year of College: Old Models and New Imperatives
Mills, Shala A.; Mehaffy, George L.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n145 p57-65 Spr 2016
This chapter argues that the first year of college needs to be reconsidered. The authors offer, as an alternative, a new kind of course, one created by groups of faculty members from different campuses, multidisciplinary in focus, delivered in a blended format, focused on civic outcomes, and intended primarily for first-year students.
