Liquid Syllabus: The First Step to Making a Connection and Reducing Student Anxiety
Click HERE to register for the webinar.
“Online students often feel isolated, which may decrease motivation and increase attrition. When learning occurs entirely through computer-mediated instruction, an important part of the instructor’s role is ensuring the learning environment is “people focused” or humanized” (http://page.teachingwithoutwalls.com/cihumanize)
In this new world of education that we now find ourselves in due to COVID-19, our students are more nervous than ever about starting a new school year. Many students would not have chosen to learn remotely/online but are now having to which is adding to the anxiety.
This session by EdTech will show how three college faculty members implemented a liquid syllabus to help reduce the student anxiety and promote student success. We will share what a liquid syllabus is and how it supports student success. Three examples that were used for Fall 2020 will be shown, challenges and workarounds discussed and the feedback from the students will be shared.
Participants will receive links to sites/resources on how to get started on their own liquid syllabus.
