The first day of class sets the tone for the whole semester. Your students will form their first impression of you, and it is your opportunity to create a classroom environment of your choosing that will endure throughout the term. In this workshop, we cover strategies for making good use of this time, including going over the syllabus and course policies, icebreakers, and introducing course material. Participants will leave the workshop with a plan for their first day of class.
Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify some of the common mistakes of first-time instructors
• Set goals for the first day of class
• Determine a plan of action for the first day of class
