First Year Seminar prides itself on offering engaging courses that ignite a passion for life-long learning.  Our faculty are constantly improving and we encourage ongoing faculty development.  In addition to our annual immersive faculty development retreats, FYS faculty can attend multiple workshops throughout the year, offered by FYS faculty and many other colleagues on campus.

All FYS faculty devlopment workshops are listed on the AppSync Events Calendar here.
