Stebleton, Michael; Jensen, Murray; Peter, Gary
College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v6 n1 p1-6 2010
Three faculty members from three different professional disciplines outline strategies to engage first-year students in a team-taught, multidisciplinary first-year experience course. The theme of the discussed section is titled food for thought...and action. Assignments are grounded in theories of cooperative and experiential learning. Tentative outcomes and students' reactions are shared. Practical suggestions are included for educators who wish to implement comparable initiatives at their respective institutions.
