This Chronicle ProfHacker blog post about Creative Approaches to the Syllabus invites faculty to think about their syllabus design, and consider giving it a makeover. It also provides links to several related articles critiquing the “syllabus bloat” and likening it to a type of Terms of Service agreement. Numerous samples of interesting and creative approaches to syllabus design are included.
If YOU have a great idea for, a resource related to, or a sample of an interesting syllabus design, please share in the comments (or send it to CTL email if you don’t have a way to link to it).
