Changing General Education Perceptions through "Perspectives" and the Interdisciplinary First-Year Seminar
Vander Schee, Brian A.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v23 n3 p382-387 2011
Introducing the general education curriculum in a required first-year seminar can be challenging. However, it provides a great opportunity to influence students' perceptions. The results of this study indicate that doing so increases student appreciation for general education and increases student confidence in general education course selection. This should enhance the classroom learning environment for all as students approach general education classes with greater interest and understanding. (Contains 1 table.)
