image002CETL wishes every single person in the NOVA community a happy first day of the Fall 2014 semester.   Here’s some articles that might interest you —

From the Chronicle and a very young professor — tips to get the first day started!  My favorite quote from the article:  “Don’t be afraid to be yourself”.    http://chronicle.com/article/article-content/136221/

Another article from the Chronicle — Each semester gives us a time for renewal — an important concept:  http://chronicle.com/article/Day-1-of-the-Semester/133167/

And from Faculty Focus — a collection of articles for the First Day!  You’ll find good stuff here! http://www.facultyfocus.com/tag/first-day-of-class/

This one, from Carnegie Mellon,  is traditional and focuses on a lot of information — maybe think about this for the first week!  Read it, though — you’ll take away some tips:  http://www.cmu.edu/teaching/designteach/teach/firstday.html

And how about some ice breaker activities for your students, from Lancing Community College:  http://www.lcc.edu/cte/resources/teachingettes/icebreakers.aspx

Don’t forget to call on CETL if you need anything at all!  CETL@nvcc.edu.
