The First-year Cohort Course Bundle 

We know that the first year at university can be challenging in itself, and on top of that, we’re still dealing with effects of a global pandemic. Whether you are doing some courses on-line, or are able to be on campus, we wanted to find a way to help you navigate your first experiences at Trinity Western University well, and a way to warmly welcome you into this community. Here are some of aspects of the TWU learning experience that you will receive as part of this Course Bundle: 

Community: You have been placed in a cohort of no more than 15 students, and you will all be taking 3 courses together. So you have opportunities to make friendships right away. And your cohort is connected to TWU Faculty and staff who will help you stay connected to what else is going on at TWU and will help answer any questions you may have. 

Academic quality: These courses have been designed by partnerships between your professors and online instructional design specialists to create integrated, engaging learning experiences for you. You will be able to interact with your professors and cohort members in meaningful ways. 

Learning Support: Each cohort has 3 TWU students who will offer peer support for you: a Peer Instructor for Foundations 101, a Writing Tutor for your Writing or English course, and a Peer Tutor for Philosophy 105. These peers are ready to help you. It’s our desire that you are successful and flourish in your time at TWU.
