Integrating Technology in the 1st-Year Seminar 
CSU Chico’s First-Year Seminar (FYS), UNIV 101, serves over 500 incoming students each year.  This project will enhance student learning outcomes in the course by addressing the following issues:

•    the use of inconsistent content and pedagogy across sections (currently 23; 25-30 sections planned for Fall 08);
•    the lack of statistically significant gains in students’ understanding of information literacy, which is one important component of the course content;
•    the use of assignments which are disconnected from students’ lived experiences and real needs;
•    the lack of consistent quality in students’ introduction to and use of WebCT Vista;
•    the failure to acknowledge what students know about technology and the inability to engage them in meaningful conversations around the links between technology and learning.

This project includes a series of developments that will address these problems through:
•    creating a common WebCT Vista shell for all sections of the course, to provide consistency and innovative pedagogy to support learning communities within and across sections;
•    creation of an online resource for the development of a common virtual text based on authentic student experience, and the archiving of student work for assessment purposes;
•    re-designing the information literacy portion of the course to link instruction to meaningful student inquiry projects focused on enhanced academic content of the course. In addition, the librarian for the First Year Experience will deliver a single large lecture to students in multiple sections which will be integrated with small group meetings with student teams;
•    exploration of students' use of mobile computer technology as important arenas for learning and delivery of course content through the TeachBack program.

Bien que de nombreux amis ne plongent pas ou même ne plongent pas, cela ne nuit pas à l'amour et à la possession de montres de plongée. La plongée est un sport qui met au défi le corps et la limite supérieure de l’esprit, avec certains risques, qui sont également prohibitifs. Mais heureusement, vous pouvez épingler vos mots préférés sur votre replique montre.Les montres de plongée font généralement référence aux montres professionnelles pour le sport de la plongée ou aux montres avec un style de montre de plongée.

I would format it just like a systematic essay (using bullet ideas of course). The instructor should be happy with it as lengthy as you make certain the assignments runs well and is relaxed to read. The one thing that instructors hate is when an assignment is hard to read. So I would just write out an essay summary of the things registered 1, 2, and 3 and then go back and put in some bullet ideas where suitable. Either way or chop up the paper in three paragraphs and write them completely in summary form so that it is easy for the instructor to read.
