First Year Florida, SLS 1102
Julie Sina, Dean of Students
The University of Florida is in its second year of offering a one credit First Year Experience course, First Year Florida (SLS 1102). We are planning to offer 50 sections of First Year Florida in fall semester 2001. A committee of faculty, student affairs staff, and students is revising the syllabus, working on a course guide, and developing a training module. We are seeking faculty, student affairs staff, and university staff who are interested in teaching a section. Each section will have a student assisting the faculty/staff teaching the course.
Please indicate your interest through submitting a letter outlining your interest in teaching the course and what you can offer to this experience. We would also appreciate a letter of support from your immediate supervisor. Your time commitment would involve training prior to the course, working with the student assigned to your section, weekly class meetings, and several meetings throughout fall semester. Each faculty/staff member teaching the course will receive a $500 stipend placed in his/her department budget to be utilized for professional development.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at 392-1261 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Letters of interest are due March 12, 2001.
