The syllabus is a document meant to serve a number of purposes including but not limited to informing the student about:
- Course policies
- Institution policies
- Due Dates
- Contact Information
- Assignment Generalities
- Overview of Course Objectives
In our course we discussed how to make a syllabus more engaging. One from of engagement is to create a graphic syllabus, allowing information to be represented visually and in a potentially interactive manner.
Below you will see the graphic syllabus I created for my Biology course. The syllabus is focused on course learning objectives but also includes time frame, skill sets, and a relative outline for the main authentic assessment, an independent research project.
By clicking on the syllabus you will see a larger version and a pdf can also be downloaded.
