First Day of Teaching

  • Starts11:00 am on Tuesday, January 9, 2024
  • Ends12:00 pm on Tuesday, January 9, 2024
How do you set the tone for the entire semester on the first day? How can you encourage students to participate in group activities? Is it possible to balance being an authority figure while still being a student yourself? This workshop is designed to help you create a positive classroom environment from the first day of the semester. Through it, you will learn about various icebreaker activities, group work that promotes increased participation, and the ways you can display leadership and still connect with students. This workshop is open to all stages of doctoral students from those who lead labs and discussion sections to those running their own courses as instructors of record.
