Start Right! How to Set the Tone on the First Day of Class

Posted on 8/14/2015 4:22:47 PM

All faculty and TAs: Please join us for the first Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting of the semester on Thursday, August 20, at 3:30 p.m. in Ackerman 116.

It only takes 7 to 12 seconds to make a first impression, but it takes 22 interactions afterward to reverse it! Are you making a good impression on your students on the first day of class? How can you set them up to impress you on the first day of class?

Do you have creative icebreakers to share? Do you agree that creating a safe learning environment encourages creativity and thoughtful class discussions? How do you create that environment on Day One?

Bring ideas to share on this important topic that sets everyone up for a successful semester.
