TLI: Getting off to a Good Start: Building Connections with your Students in the First Few Weeks
Learn to break down barriers to learning by building rapport with students and helping them establish interpersonal connections in traditional, hybrid and online environments. This session will feature lessons learned from First-Year Courses instructors and an exceptional peer-mentor who found ways to reach students whose first semester took place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Topics to be covered are: empathy, communication, trends among incoming students, transparent design, academic recovery and cultivating intrinsic motivation. Expect to walk away with practical approaches and adaptable lesson plans. Examples of instructional videos, group assignments and recovery workshops will be shared. You are encouraged to bring your own best practices to share during the follow-up discussion.
