PowerPoint slides for a synchronous session in week 1 of a first-year business communications course. This week serves as an introduction to the course, the tools used in it, and each other. These slides contain an icebreaker activity about location, an orientation to synchronous sessions in the course, a group activity in which students try to guess what will be covered in the course, the actual learning outcomes of the course, a brainstorming activity to generate ideas about how to be successful in the course, and a list of student tasks for the week.

A lesson plan is available to accompany these slides.
