We would ideally like to find people who can commit to one or more years of teaching in Arts One. Faculty in all disciplines are welcome.

The Arts One program is a team-taught, interdisciplinary program for first-year students in the Faculty of Arts.

There are also weekly tutorial meetings of four students plus their seminar leader, to do peer review of students’ essays (each student writes twelve 1,500-2,000 word essays and a final capstone paper in the course of the year).

The four- or five-member teaching team works together on a theme and reading list, and each member of the teaching team is responsible for four or five of the two-hour lectures during the year.

Robert Crawford, Political Science
