The first day of class sets the tone for the rest of the semester. It’s an opportunity to set learners’ expectations, establish a feeling of community, and give students a taste of course content. This webinar will focus on ideas and activities that instructors can use to get a course off to a great start, with time for questions and discussion.
This webinar is part of the Center for Teaching and Learning’s online mini-workshop series focused on foundational teaching skills, Teaching@IUPUI. Designed for new faculty, adjunct faculty, graduate students, and those looking for a refresher on good teaching practices, the webinars are short, with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable. Sessions are scheduled with the time of semester in mind, to keep topics relevant for faculty needs at that time.
