It's in the Syllabus and Other First Generation College Student Experiences

Ann Arbor MI 02-07-2020 02-07-2020 An immersive, playfully disorienting encounter, this workshop offers participants a complex view of a heterogenous identity group: students who are the first generation in their family to attend college. By witnessing several intersecting narratives about challenges that individual students have experienced, participants confront stereotypes about who first generation college students (FGCS) are and what they bring to the classroom. Through facilitated activities and discussion, instructors strategize about ways to make their classrooms more inclusive and foster belonging for FGCS. The session is appropriate for faculty and graduate student instructors.
