CTL Workshop: Visual Syllabus Workshop
November 25, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
A visual syllabus is a graphic representation of key syllabus information that helps to organize a course.
This type of document is recommended as a supplement to the more formalized, official syllabus, such as that required/recommended by individual departments.
When designed effectively, a visual syllabus not only tells a story about your course, but about you, your enthusiasm, and your expectations for students.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the benefits of supplementing your standard syllabus with a visual one
- How a visual syllabus supports Universal Design for Learning, create connection across course concepts and outcomes;
- Understand the basic practice of creating a visual syllabus; and
- Engage with examples of visual syllabi developed for UBC courses and how to adapt them for your course(s).
This session will be co-facilitated by Ahlam Bavi, CTL Learning Design Intern, and Nina Langton, Associate Professor, Language and World Literatures.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
