Student Friendly and Interactive Syllabi

August 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A syllabus is an important part of students’ first impression of you and your course. It outlines the semester’s major work, describes course goals, your policies, and some relevant university policies…but how many syllabi end up looking like long legalistic documents that students won’t read? This workshop introduces some simple principles for making syllabi student-centered.

Additionally, we’ll introduce the interactive syllabus, a way of presenting your syllabus through a simple survey. This creates opportunities for students to interact with you and the syllabus–and perhaps even contribute to the syllabus. We’ll explore several options, both thematically and technologically, for using an interactive syllabus, including starting from a template to reduce your workload.

Facilitated by Jen Garrett-Ostermiller and Susanmarie Harrington.

You will receive a Microsoft Teams calendar invitation the afternoon prior to your event explaining how to join and participate in the meeting.  If you click “accept,” it will populate on your Teams calendar for easy access!
