First Year Connections

At Medgar Evers College, I collaborated on curriculum development for a grant-funded course entitled "The Common Intellectual Experience: English 150" to be piloted in Spring 2020. This initiative was designed using high-impact educational practices and was the first of its kind in the English Department at MEC.

 

From 2011-2018, I worked with faculty across the disciplines at Hofstra University in the First Year Connections program. Clusters in the FYC program are sets of two or three classes, linked by a common theme, that fulfill General Education requirements.

These courses are also designed to help first-year students transition to college life and to aid retention.

 

I coordinated with faculty across the disciplines in the clusters before and during the semester to design projects that would connect to and support their coursework. My WAC/WID experience informed these collaborative teaching efforts.
