CC100 and CC120 are part of the first-year foundations sequence and are required for all students entering the College beginning Fall 2020. The overarching goals and learning outcomes for these courses can be found on the General Education website. In addition to the resources below, faculty are encouraged to reach out to Aaron Stoller (astoller@coloradocollege) and Kat Bell (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time for pedagogical support for these courses.
- CC100 handbook & CC120 handbook
- These handbooks are intended to support faculty in familiarizing themselves with the aims, outcomes/assessments, pedagogies, and campus support structures for CC100 & CC120. They are intended to be an evolving resource for new and returning faculty as they develop and deliver CC100 courses. The handbooks are living documents that will be adjusted in response to ongoing and shifting community and classroom needs. Please check back regularly for updates.
