Designing an Effective Syllabus

Resources to help faculty and staff design an effective syllabus to engage and motivate students

Image-based and Creative Syllabi

On this page, we’ve included links to some exemplary syllabi that move beyond being long, text-heavy documents. Syllabi that use images and creative layouts can be very engaging for students while still being detailed and informative. 
It is important to consider the accessibility of these documents. Be sure to include alternative text for photos and to consider font and color choices throughout. If you have questions - please feel free to contact CTL.
