Save your ol' faves is an initiative to support faculty in saving old favourite teaching materials to a digital form. We convert your out-of-date VHS tapes, acetates used for overhead projectors, or paper resources to a digital format so that they can be stored and shared with students more easily.
In August, the Teaching and Learning Centre sent out a newsletter with articles relevant to the start of the semester. I made the “first day of class goals” explicit in my course (Best Practices of Teaching and Learning), as a TOD. This served as a “self-check”, but also reminded future educators about the importance of building community and trying to connect with students.
