College 1 was intentionally created as an interdisciplinary course housed in the Counseling Division that can be taught by any adjunct or full-time faculty member or PCC manager with a Master’s Degree. All College 1 instructors attend the College 1 Institute in preparation for teaching the class and can join a mentor group to support their teaching during the semester.

About the Professional Learning Institute

As a new College 1 instructor you will attend a 4-day professional learning institute that allows you to learn about foundational theories behind first year student success, the teaching and learning framework of Reading Apprenticeship and the model curriculum for the course. Monthly check-ins will continue throughout the semester with lunches.
