1. Wellness Tip of the Week: Reflect on Your Summer

Event Type(s): Health

Summer has come and gone and the fall semester is upon us. Before classes begin this week, take a few quiet moments to reflect on your summer. Savor the sweet memories and take note of what challenged you. If you're a visual person, create a collage with photos or mementoes. If you connect more with words, jot down some thoughts on your summer including positive experiences you'd like to remember and any experiences from which you can learn and grow. Keep these images or words close by this fall and allow them to energize and inspire you as we enter into the later part of this year.

2. TLTC Teaching Tip of the Week: Breaking the Ice on Day One

Event Type(s): Other

Almost everything is new at the first class of the semester -- at least for many students. To overcome initial inhibitions and help students ease in to their new classroom setting many teachers use introductory rounds to create a feeling of familiarity. Yet, students often despise these activities and experience shows that these icebreakers do not always build a better rapport within the classroom. Dr. Dylan Selterman (Psychology) suggests a different and very simple approach that has been scientifically proven to be successful to engage students right from the beginning.
