Thursday, August 28: Getting off to a Good Start

Welcome back to a new fall semester! Even though the beginning of the year can be hectic at times, it is also the best time to be thinking about ways to get your class off to the best start possible.

Research has shown that paying extra attention to these first few weeks of classes can establish extremely helpful patterns for both students and faculty.

At our first UCITE session of this fall, in addition to suggestions on how to get more engagement from your students and how to encourage them to read and write better, we will also provide tips on things you could do to make the semester go more smoothly and address any concerns that you might have.

Please join us for this discussion from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at the sessions. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend this session by replying to this email to
