Starting university can be a daunting experience. As educators we want all our students to have a sense of belonging, to feel valued and respected. Spending time at the beginning of the academic year to get to know your students, for them to get to know each other, and for them to get to know you is a valuable way to put them at ease.

Cultivating an inclusive learning community develops confidence and students are more likely to engage. My presentation will share some of the activities my first-year students experience and how this contributes to student engagement.
