Create an introductory activity connected to your discipline to get to know your learners. Here are some examples for more ‘traditional’ subjects; how might you apply a similar idea?
- In a Human Geography class, you could ask every student to identify a location from which they would want to conduct field work, and why.
- For English Literature, each student could discuss what fictional character they would like to invite to dinner, and why.
- In History, ask what figure, living or dead, would be the most interesting to have at a cocktail party, and why.
