First Impressions Make a Lasting Impression

What a faculty does the first day of class can set the tone for how the rest of the semester progresses (or digresses). This may seem a bit unfair but it's reality. Fairly or unfairly the student audience is about to pass judgement. A faculty's professionalism and academic credentials are in the spotlight. Basically, you're on stage and about to give a performance. One DON'T is crystal clear- do not end class early! Why? You're saying that the class and/or topic are not that important. Below are some links to ideas that may prove useful that crucial first day of class.
