What happens if my recertification materials aren’t accepted? Accordion Closed
We designed FYLI recertification as a developmental process; our goal is that any course that makes a good faith effort to engage in recertification should be successful. If your final report out is incomplete, or if it indicates that FYLI practices are not being consistently followed, the FYLI Director will work with the course coordinator to remedy the concerns.
As long as the course coordinator is actively progressing toward recertification, the certification will remain in place and Peer TA support will continue. Courses that are not actively working to complete recertification, after notification that they need to be doing so, will be decertified and will lose Peer TA support in the semester immediately following desertification. Decertification is a last resort and we do not anticipate that this will be a common occurrence.
What kinds of assessment data should I include for recertification? Accordion Closed

Do I have to do in-class observations to be recertified? What does in-class observation involve? Accordion Closed
In-class observations are not mandatory for recertification. However, they provide a powerful way to document engaging pedagogy, and we hope that in the long term, most coordinators opt to participate in in-class observations. If you are interested in conducting in-class observations, please contact the FYLI Director to work out individual plans for doing so.
