Monday 1/4 - Syllabus Makeover Challenge - Part 1 (Standard)

Creating a course syllabus and making it available to students is an essential responsibility as an instructor. Often the syllabus gives students a first impression about what to expect from the course. In this workshop, you will create a standard (accessible) syllabus or update your current syllabus into one that incorporates UDL principles. A template is provided for a quick-start.
