Fall 2017 University 101 Peer Leaders

Spring Orientation

Once selected, peer leaders begin formal training in late March at Spring Orientation. Orientation is co-facilitated by University 101 staff and Senior Peer Leaders. At orientation, peer leaders are introduced to factors we know from our assessment contribute to the success of a first-year seminar course including the use of engaging pedagogy, increased sense of belonging, and the seminar instructors’ roles in identifying student challenges and making appropriate referrals. Peer leaders spend significant time identifying a variety of methods they can use to contribute to these factors in the classroom. Additionally, peer leaders identify traditional aspects of the role, best practices for building successful relationships with their teaching partner, and ways to develop community in the classroom.
