Our office has compiled samples from various faculty that address nearly every aspect of teaching a Signature Course, from creating your syllabus to designing assignments that successfully incorporate the various course essentials.
Each Signature Course will help students adapt their skills to college level writing. Take a look at these resources and tips, which can help you plan assignments appropriate for first-year students. You can also learn more about the writing flag. All UGS 302 courses carry the writing flag. UGS 303 courses can carry the writing flag, but faculty members must submit a flag proposal.
The First-Year Experience office coordinates an undergraduate peer mentor program for a limited number of UGS 302 courses. Learn more about this program.
