In Fall 2015 the College of Coastal Georgia eliminated its College Success Seminar requirement for all new first-year students. This two-credit course, in place for more than a decade, introduced students to the expectations of and the resources provided by the College, but the course was also widely viewed as a financial burden for students and faculty participation was at a historic low. College Success Seminar was replaced by a three-part system that included a summer orientation, two days of workshops at the beginning of the semester, and a seven-week blended learning experience facilitated by student leaders. This session, led by the director of e-learning and a member of the English faculty, will demonstrate the online components of the system, examine the challenges of leading with online tools in at an access institution, and will demonstrate a research technique that faculty in any discipline can use in their classes.
