Week zero and ice-breakers: Helping students get to know the course, the professor and each other

When: September 29, 2015, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Where: Charlotte Frank Classroom (1203 HE)

Presenter(s): Erica Chutuape (Asian-American Studies) Sandi Clarkson (Math & Statistics) Kristen Hodnett (Special Education)

What do you do to introduce your course to your students and help them get ready for a new semester? The first day and week of a course can set the tone for the whole semester. For professors teaching hybrid or online courses, there’s an additional layer of challenge. Conveying expectations early can lessen misunderstandings and doing ice-breaker activities can help group projects move along more smoothly. We’ve invited several Hunter professors to talk about how they use VoiceThread, discussion boards and wikis for ice-breaking activities. The panelists include Kristen Hodnett (Special Education), Sandi Clarkson (Math & Stats), Erica Chutuape (Asian-American Studies). Come to hear how they kick off the semester and share your ideas about how you help your students get to know the course, get to know you and get to know each other.
