Fall 2017 August Workshops

Resources for New and Returning Lecturers and Graduate Students

Welcome to the University of Tennessee’s award-winning first-year composition program! On this website, you will find detailed information about our program and our upcoming August workshops.

This information is relevant for new and returning lecturers, as well as for new and returning graduate teaching assistants and associates. To help you find what you need to know, we developed population-specific checklists, which are located under the Checklists link below.

Fall 2017 August Workshops will take place Wednesday, August 16 through Friday, August 18. New graduate students should also attend the GSE Orientation on Tuesday, August 15.

The schedules for August Workshops and the GSE Orientation are listed below, along with the schedule for Department Meetings, Lecturers’ Retreat, & Receptions on Tuesday, August 22. 

August workshops provide new lecturers and graduate students the opportunity to learn our rhetoric- and transfer-based curriculum. Returning lecturers and graduate students have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the curriculum and hone their teaching practices.

If you have participated in August workshops in the past, you may notice that this year’s schedule looks a bit different from previous years. We separated populations into tracks so that individuals can get information about our FYC program that is tailored to their specific needs.

If you have any questions about August workshops, feel free to contact one of the directors of FYC:
