FIRST Projects

In the past 25 years, over 500 UNL faculty from at least 53 different departments and eight colleges have discussed, researched, analyzed and reflected upon their teaching as part of the FIRST program. Through the documentation of their experiences, they created an amazing array of teaching portfolios and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning projects.

We showcase some of those FIRST works here.
