Two ideas for spring semester

December 21, 2016

light paintingTo finish up the year I’m highlighting some of our most popular articles. They’re grouped into two strategies you might want to explore over the break. Don’t worry if it’s too late for major changes to that spring course. You can use these ideas to move the needle just a smidge the first time around.

1. Have students create media

This can take the form of a small assignment. It doesn’t have to rise to the level of a major paper.

2. Make your materials pop

There are easy ways to make a handout, syllabus, or other document visually more effective — and they don’t require redoing everything from scratch.
