Course Kickoff

CREATE A SENSE OF COMMUNITY WITHIN YOUR CLASS

What makes a good team, a good classroom, and a good studio is setting up a community that's safe and trusted - as well as genuine interest in others, kindness, active listening & sharing, and a desire for everyone to improve their skills & knowledge & achieve their goals.

Use this template to kickoff your class with visual student introductions to set up a great sense of community and learning environment. Best used with professors looking to get to know their small to mid-sized class.
