THE CSU FIRST FOUR WEEKS INITIATIVE: Overview and Getting Connected
College of Natural Sciences Master Teaching Initiative LUNCHEON AND LECTURE

Jennifer Neuwald, Kerry MacFarland, and Paul Laybourn
This workshop is designed to draw faculty attention to the First Four Weeks Initiative. The FFW Initiative is a collaboration between the administration, TILT, Student Affairs and a cohort of CNS and CHHS Faculty Associates. The goals of the FFW Initiative are to 1. design intentional university learning environments to accelerate new students’ adjustment to the university within the first four weeks through clear articulation of learning expectations and the skills and behaviors appropriate to those expectations and 2. Create an ethic of early performance where students and instructors start a course engaged at a high level of effort employing evidence-based learning approaches and a growth mindset.

The key goal of this workshop is to recruit additional instructors to join the FFW Initiative. To learn more about the FFW Initiative and to meet the CNS FFW Associates please attend and participate in the workshop.

This workshop counts toward the TILT Graduate Teaching Certificate. This session aligns with the Classroom Climate and Feedback/Assessment domains of the Teaching Effectiveness Framework.
