This session will help the instructor decide what to do during the first day of a course and the development time prior to the start of the course. We will consider:
•How to first communicate with your student.
•What course expectations will you have?
•What activities and assignments will you provide to engage your students during the first day?
•How will you direct your students to the first week assignments?
We will think through the nuts and bolts of what you as the instructor need to best prepare your students to be successful starting the first day of your course.
•Prepare and implement a course communication policy.
•Prepare and implement course expectations.
•Prepare and implement course activities and assignments to engage students the first day of class.
