Rethinking the Syllabus

Compliments to your Syllabus that Enhance Readability

How many times in your teaching career have you had to tell a student that the information they are asking about is in the syllabus...if they'd only read it and look it over. This workshop explores three different ways to help your students understand your syllabus! We'll cover creating and using pacing guides, interactive syllabi, and infographic syllabi. IDS will provide the template and technical support and you’ll provide the syllabus - we’ll work together to create something you can use over and over again in your classes and increase student understanding of your expectations, the workload, and the class as a whole.


- A editable, digital copy of the syllabus you'd like to workshop 

- Your Blackboard login and username. 

- Any links to content, material, or other websites you'd like to include in your interactive syllabus.
