Using Strengths-Based Instructional Frameworks to Teach First-generation College Students

PC 09

Resources to build the pedagogical capacity of faculty and student affairs educators are critical in order to support the academic achievement and engagement of first-generation college students (FGCS) in ways that acknowledge and draw on their cultural strengths. Presenters will overview faculty development institutes offered at a four-year university (52% FGCS) and share how they support teaching and learning through critical skill building, syllabi revision, and new instructional strategies. Presented approaches apply to a range of instructional settings, sizes, platforms, academic levels, and disciplines.
