First Day of Class

This is a well-organized site that describes what instructors should do on the first day of class. As indicated on the site, "The first day of class is your opportunity to present your vision of the class to prospective students. It is helpful if you can introduce yourself as a scholar and educator and provide insight into how you will teach the class and what you will expect them to contribute to the learning process." Topics include: The Inviting Classroom, Course Expectations and Requirements, Additional Resources, and Summary Checklist.
