Winter Conference 2020: Visual Syllabi and Other Roadmaps to Student Engagement and Success

11 December 2020

Students sometimes have difficulties connecting daily assignments and lessons to the overall picture of the course.  A visual representation of the course can help with making the connections clearer, giving students a clearer sense of purpose, and, through that, help motivate students.  The workshop guided faculty through the process of thinking about a syllabus differently; the outcome will be at least a rough sketch of a drawing that can be shared with students.  Participants were encouraged to share their rough drawings to get a sense how different such representations can be.

Organizer: Wiebke Kuhn, Director of Academic Technology
