In this session we will introduce transition pedagogy at York in the form of Lizzio’s Five Senses of Student Success. Participants will be asked to reflect on the design of their 1000-level course(s) and identify where they will nurture each of Lizzio’s senses of success within their course. Participants will engage in discussions and share ideas of how you already incorporate and support these senses of success and what more we could do.
You may find it helpful to bring a draft of your course syllabus with you to finalize over lunch. We will have a working lunch break, but please note that lunch is not provided.
In the afternoon, we will welcome guests from across campus who will help support you and your students throughout your course. We will have individuals from the Learning Commons, including the Career Centre, YU Experience Hub, Learning Skills Services, Libraries and the Writing Centre. We will also have faculty members from Science and Writing experienced in teaching critical thinking, writing and metacognitive skills share their secrets.
