Register»   |  Organizer: Sarah Lang | Presenter: Jennifer Beasley

We are all familiar with the basics needed in a classroom: a syllabus, a schedule, ice-breakers, etc. But how do you make that great first impression? The activities you choose for the first day of class and an effective and successful syllabus help set students’ expectations for the entire semester. This session will focus on some of the basics that are so important to get your classroom off to a great start and provide resources for first day of class activities and language to include in your syllabus.

This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online workshop series, Teaching@IUPUI. Tailored for faculty new to IUPUI, each online workshop serves as a forum to learn new strategies and hone teaching practices. Grounded in current research, these workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies that can make instruction more effective and efficient as well as introduce participants to teaching and learning resources available on campus.
