First Day of Class Activity Boot Camp

How much do first impressions count? If you’re not quite sure what to do on the first day of class but want to inspire your students right from day one, this workshop is for you. This session aims to inspire you to engage and excite your students about your course material right from the first minute they enter your class. Rather than spending most of the first class going over your course outline, there are multiple strategies you can use to stimulate reflection, critical thinking, and enthusiasm for the course content. An engaging first day of class can set the stage for an active and learning-centred classroom and foster classroom community. We’ll experiment with a few strategies throughout the session, so please come prepared to participate!

Refreshments provided.
