Additional Resources and Events
Join UVA's College of Arts and Sciences for a mock class experience: EGMT 1520 Why We Hold Hands
Come experience a representative example of a College of Arts & Sciences First-Year class. Professor Jim Coan, future Co-Director of the College Fellows and the Engagements Program, will offer the very first day of his EGMT 1520: Why We Hold Hands Engagement Seminar designed expressly for first-year students. As a participant in the class, Professor Coan asks that you come prepared to ask questions and reflect on the experience. The first way to prepare is to review the Syllabus and the two assigned class readings. Don't worry, they're really engaging (pun intended)! Also, have blank sheets of paper and colorful pens and pencils at your disposal during the class.
The Engagements are first-year classes taught by UVA's leading scholars and teachers. They ask big questions, and invite you to think about what you know and value. For more on the specifics of Why We Hold Hands, check out the course description or this UVA Today interview with Professor Coan.
Mock Class Experience To-Do List:
- Register for the webinar.
- Review the syllabus here.
- Read the Introduction and Principles of Scientific Inquiry before class.
- Grab some paper and brightly colored pens/markers.
- Ask questions throughout class!
