Summary

The University 101 concept as a method for improving university teaching and learning is described, with emphasis on the faculty training program, although the approach also includes a three-credit-hour freshman orientation course. The structure, content, outcomes, and research findings on the University 101 program are examined. The approach was originally developed at the University of South Carolina and has been replicated at other institutions. University 101 has provided faculty training through its 40 hour training workshops for over 400 faculty and professional staff. The faculty training is divided into four phases: building group trust, identifying learning objectives, interaction with learning resources, and linking with experienced University 101 faculty. The program is designed to integrate faculty and professional staff in an effort that is both academic and humanistic in its orientation in order to reduce the barriers between them at the university. The program is also designed to sensitize faculty members to the needs and problems of students in general and freshmen in particular. Faculty members who have completed the 40 hour training teach the University 101 course, "The Student in the University," that is offered to freshmen. (SW)
