The first day of class can be both exciting and nerve racking. Whether you are teaching face to face or online or anything in between, the first days of class are crucial to a successful semester. In this session we’ll discuss a variety of ideas, activities, and strategies that will help you get your Fall 2021 course off to the right start. 

These will include:

  • Setting a tone (and identifying what tone you want to set)
  • Building connections and community
  • Getting students excited (!) about the content
  • Outlining course expectations and getting students engaged in those expectations
  • The almighty syllabus
