Craft the first 15 minutes of your course

This was a session I led at the 2016 Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) conference in London, Ontario. As I was modelling actual teaching of the first class in a course, I gave out a syllabus, and homework (see below).

Here are some follow-up resources to explore (you may recall that this is your homework!)

Thanks for coming to the session.

Here's an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.
