Tips for the First Week of Class


The first week of class can set the tone for the rest of the semester. Building community and assessing for prior learning and experiences is a great way to help bring students together and start off on equal footing. This session will cover the hows and whys of both.

  • Building community can help improve intrinsic motivation and builds a community of learners who can work together on knowledge construction
  • Assessing for prior learning will help you, the instructor identify and correct gaps or misconceptions early,  and will help the students begin to build a framework for learning in your class.
