Have you ever struggled with what to do on the first day of class? You only get one chance to make a first impression, so make it count. It’s an opportunity to set learners’ expectations and establish a feeling of community. This 30-minute online mini-workshop will focus on ideas and activities you can use to get your course off to a great start.
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 workshops will be short (usually 30 minutes), with a brief presentation interspersed with opportunities for interaction and questions. Grounded in current research, the workshops will address various teaching topics and provide participants with strategies and resources to make instruction more effective, efficient, and enjoyable.
NOTE: The Teaching at IUPUI mini-workshops are held online using Adobe Connect. You will need working speakers to hear the presenter. It is strongly recommended that you have a high-speed Internet connection to participate in this session. Registered participants will receive an email with instructions for viewing and a link to the Adobe Connect meeting room upon registering.
