Active Learning Tuesdays

Motivate Your Students from the First Day of Class

Presented by Liza Dister, Faculty Development Center Coordinator


What can we do to set our ourselves up for a productive semester and to set our students up to feel motivated to learn? This session will address strategies that faculty can use at the beginning of the semester to promote student motivation and engagement in their courses, including:

  • Using your syllabus as a teaching tool
  • Showing students you care about their success, building community in your class, and using ice breakers
  • Creating challenge in your course and setting expectations for a productive semester
  • Promoting inclusion for all of your students

Webster University faculty and saff are welcome.

Feel free to drop in or register now.  RSVPs are appreciated.
