Incentivizing attendance in large lecture courses

In our newest “how can we help you?” thread, a reader asks:

I’m teaching a massive (~300 student) course this fall and looking for tips about how to incentivize attendance. Of course I will make the class as interesting, fun, and interactive (small group discussions/activities, etc.) as possible. But I’m not sure this is enough. How can I encourage students to come to class in ways that don’t overburden the TAs?

This is a good question. I haven’t taught a large lecture course in over a decade, so unfortunately I don’t have any helpful tips to share. But it would be great to hear from readers who do!
