Current and past First-Year Seminar instructors have graciously agreed to share their materials, such as syllabi, lesson plans, classroom activities, assignments, etc. with University of Iowa instructors who are currently teaching a First-Year Seminar or are considering submitting a proposal to teach a FYS next fall.  

How do I access these materials?

If you would like access to these resources, please email View only access will be granted to a OneDrive folder that is only available to UI faculty and staff, upon request.

I would like to volunteer my course materials to be shared with other or potential FYS instructors. How do I do that?

If you have resources you would like to share with others, please email

Thank you!
