Setting the Tone from the Start

Setting the Tone from the Start In-Person / Online

Join us for a dynamic and insightful one-hour hybrid workshop where we'll guide educators through a comprehensive exploration of actionable strategies that lay the groundwork for an engaging and inclusive course experience from day one. The way a course begins often shapes its entire trajectory, making it crucial for educators to establish an environment that fosters engagement, collaboration, and a sense of belonging from day one.

In this workshop, we'll delve into practical techniques and proven methods that empower educators to create a welcoming and motivating atmosphere that resonates with students. Whether you're a seasoned educator or just embarking on your teaching journey this session is designed to equip you with actionable insights that will make a difference in your classroom.

Uncover the art of crafting an inviting syllabus introduction that resonates with students and sparks curiosity. Navigate the terrain of setting transparent expectations, and checking in with students about their needs to ensure both clarity and access. We'll delve into the power of building a supportive community that embraces diverse perspectives, fostering connections among peers. From interactive icebreakers to leveraging technology for virtual engagement, you'll gain a toolkit to set and maintain a welcoming atmosphere for learning. 

Join us in "Setting the Tone from the Start" as we delve into the art of creating a positive learning environment that ignites curiosity, encourages active participation, and empowers students to thrive. Whether you're in a physical or virtual classroom, these insights will empower you to establish a foundation that resonates throughout the entire learning journey.

The content in this workshop will be primarily targeted to classroom instructors and settings, but tools and strategies are relevant for adaptation and use by any educator in any context. This session’s content does not build upon that of other CTLI programs. It is, however, a recommended pathway in CTLI’s Educator Onboarding offerings. Please NOTE: this is a HYBRID program (meaning there will be both virtual and in person locations) for this workshop. The on-campus location is being confirmed and updated details will be sent to all registrants as soon as available.
