What's a Syllabus Good for When it Comes to Learning?
In this ILED Designcast episode, we tackle the topic of the course syllabus. Is it a contract for a transaction? Is it a permanent record? Is it a learning environment? Are there alternative formats we should consider?
In our discussion, we focus on the importance of defining the "Why" of the syllabus, as well as its potential as a learning environment that transcends the traditional written format.
At the Institute for Learning Environment Design, we help educators visually communicate their ideas with others.
Formed through an innovative collaboration between the University of Central Oklahoma and NextThought LLC., ILED is the premier thought leader on using visual languages to help people communicate and solve problems.
