It is the understanding that first-year seminars share a common goal- to develop self-directed learning (SDL) habits in first-year students. This article provides a suggested model for faculty modeling-SDL in first-year seminars. This model explores how first-year seminar faculty can progress their courses towards SDL by following these five suggested steps that correspond to content delivery that is familiar to first-year students: Setting the Tone with I Do, Setting a Baseline, Structured We Do, Reflection, and You Do. Ultimately, this article hopes to initiate conversation about how faculty modeling-SDL translates into everyday practices.
