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.
