3:00-4:00 - One hour session
This workshop promotes the design and implementation of an interactive syllabus to better reach and engage students in its contents. How many times have you received a question and thought “It’s in the syllabus!” The course syllabus is a treasure of information and expectations of any course, but somehow it is often overlooked by those who need it the most: students. The traditional way of presenting a syllabus can sometimes be too institutional or instructor-sided for students to be captivated. Many times when designing or redesigning a course the syllabus style and presentation do not change, at most some content might have been modified.

It is time to make a better first impression with students and build a student-centered syllabus. Come design a more visually appealing and dynamic syllabus. In this workshop, we will review the base of an effective digital, multi-sensory design syllabus that in turn holds students accountable for the course, instructor and institutional expectations, guidelines, policies, among other important information.
