Teaching Resources       top

  In the past, LeaRN has hosted Brown Bag Discussions that have focused on issues of transition and academic success for incoming college students.  Some of the Teaching Tips and Guides come from these discussions.

Teaching Tips and Guides


These short articles and handouts feature high-interest teaching topics for faculty and graduate students, especially related to the learning of first and second-year students at UW.  These topics are also subjects of Brown Bag Discussions that LeaRN offers in fall and spring semesters.

Cowboy Connect Program


The University of Wyoming's Summit Transition Program is a weekend program designed for new UW students. Summit activities are scheduled on the Thursday through Saturday before the fall semester begins.

Designated sessions are offered for transfer students, veteran students, and students living off campus. These sessions are tailored to the specific needs and experiences of each group.
