1d: Preparing an Effective Syllabus
In this module, instructors will learn both the essential information to be included in their inclusive syllabus as well as practices for effectively sharing their syllabi with students. In addition, they will learn the benefits of creating varied types of syllabi including a big idea, graphic, motivational and liquid syllabi to engage and motivate students.
To satisfy the module requirements, practicing faculty must apply at least one technique, such as using a checklist and guiding questions to revise their syllabus or creating their own graphic or big ideas syllabus.
This module is one of five modules under ACUE’s unit on Designing an Effective Course and Class.
