Year One FAQ

Each question may be toggled to reveal the answer below it. If your question is not answered, call CELT at 515-294-5357 or email celt@iastate.edu.

Inform your department chair/unit leader as tracking and reporting occurs at the departmental level.

Then, complete Year One by engaging in the four online modules in the Canvas course.

Each module includes self-guided exercises that mirror what your colleagues completed in Year One. Once completed, follow the steps outlined in the How do I create a record of completion of the Year One training in the FAQ section below.

Additional questions about the Canvas environment or other learning support, visit the Online Learner Support webpage.

Each module includes a purpose statement, learning objectives, tasks to achieve the objectives, and a critical reflection question.

All data gathered will be pooled and reported in an aggregated form for use in the training. With this in mind, use netiquette, view the Netiquette at ISU page.

Once you complete a reflection, you will automatically receive full credit of 1858* points. *1858 represents when the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm (now Iowa State University) was officially established on March 22, 1858, by the legislature of the State of Iowa (Iowa State Sesquicentennial: History of Iowa State website).

Attended face-to-face or synchronous Year One training

If you attended the face-to-face or synchronous Year One training during 2020, contact the leadership listed on the  Training Schedule for Departments page. To learn more, read the response for the In 2020, I attended the Year One face-to-face or synchronously is there a record section on this page.

In 2020, CELT facilitated the face-to-face/synchronous Year One program, curated resources, and the learning modules. Participation tracking, and organizing the actual training was at the local departmental/unit level.

Therefore, we hoped that the hosting department sent a notification to the chair of the participation completion. 

As an additional record of your completion of the face-to-face component, we encouraged participants to take a photo or selfie of the experience to record their attendance.

Contact the leadership listed in the table below.

In 2020, CELT facilitated the face-to-face/synchronous Year One program, curated resources, and the learning modules. Participation tracking, and organizing the actual training was at the local departmental/unit level. Year One training is now asynchronous through Canvas.

Feedback regarding Year One Training was very positive. Over 1,300 faculty participants responded to the post-workshop survey: 98% strongly agree/agree that they “recognize why teaching inclusively is important,” with 93% stating that they have “identified course-specific improvements to foster inclusive excellence in the classroom” (Hengsteg et al., 2021).
