The first days of class are essential for building community and getting students excited about the content of our courses. The first in a four-part series on Well-Being and Inclusivity in the classroom, this initial session is about incorporating meaningful beginnings, fostering inclusive and welcoming first impressions and setting the tone for your whole course. We will explore a variety of ideas to get the Fall 2022 semester off to a good start including: • Introducing Yourself
• Building Community
• Promoting student engagement
• Co-creating course expectations
• Developing an Inclusive Syllabus
This is session one in a four-part Well-Being and Inclusivity learning series, offering initial and accessible strategies to begin the journey towards the creation of inclusive classrooms, in full acknowledgement of the long-term and deep nature of this work. You are invited to participate in one, two or all of the sessions.?
