The May Workshop is an annual one-and-a-half day event for faculty teaching in the First-Year Seminar program.  At the May Workshop, we hear from experts on pedagogy relevant to the First-Year Seminar program, both home-grown and from other institutions.  We also talk among ourselves, both formally in the workshop and informally over meals, about our strategies for introducing our students to what they will need to know and do to flourish at Amherst.
