“Using an interactive syllabus has fundamentally changed the way I begin my classes each semester. I know more about my students and can avoid the tedium of syllabus day."
Dr. Guy McHendry, Creighton University
Learn about your students’ needs before class even begins. Demonstrate interest and care for them as whole persons.
Discover your students' motivations, needs, and objectives for the class.
Break out of the boundaries of Syllabus Day. Know your students are ready for content from the first day.
Start the first day of class ready to answer any questions they may have about the class and then jump into content right away.
Begin building a relationship with students right away and give them a chance to talk to you before your first face to face meeting.
Add or remove elements to meet the specific needs of your class.
