Fabulous First Friday: How to Start Off Your Semester By Reflecting on the Past – Strategies for Engagement on the First Day of Classes

Friday, January 10, 2014 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., MRH (SOLES) 201

Facilitated by:
Dr. Sarina Molina, School of Leadership and Education Sciences

In January, we extend December’s topic on reflecting and debriefing the classroom with a discussion about the beginning of the semester. Students make up their minds about a course within the first few minutes during the first class period. Therefore, we have a very small window of time to pique their interest and draw them into our course. Dr. Molina will facilitate a discussion about how previous semesters can be used to inform course revisions and share some of her strategies for the first day of class.

Fabulous First Fridays are monthly drop in discussion sessions about common classroom issues which are facilitated by experienced USD faculty. Ample time is given to share and tailor approaches to your own classroom situations and supplemental resource materials are provided. We welcome all faculty members to join us and discover, or rediscover, some of the best, research and experiential based, practices for teaching and learning.

Please note: you are welcome to drop in and out of the sessions as your time allows.
