Annotating the syllabus helps learners to read, make sense of, question, and discuss their learning.
This is a great way of getting students to engage with, make sense of, question and discuss their course and learning – all in one go. Get started by providing your syllabus in an accessible online format and seed the annotations with a few of your own. By modeling what is expected, you take students past the intimidating “blank page” and set them up for a fruitful sharing of ideas.
This activity is one of a series of activities from Equity Unbound, focused on equitable online community building.
