It’s in the syllabus, Karen

It’s in the syllabus, Karen…

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, Eric Loepp from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater has an interesting strategy for making the important information in his syllabus more usable for his students. He puts it in FAQ form. From “What do I do if I miss class?” to “How will my grade be calculated”, re-writing your syllabus in the form of an FAQ is a kind way for your syllabus to be an effective guide for your students.

The takeaway? There is so much great information in our syallabi, and too often, it goes underutilized while students ask our faculty the same questions that can be easily referenced here. Creative solutions like this FAQ repurposing are a great way to make sure our students get the answers they need as efficiently as possible.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
