Syllabus Trading Zone


The Syllabus Trading Zone workshop was one of four programs that the Bruce K. Nelson Faculty Development Center hosted to help prepare EMU faculty for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. Through this programming, we intended to give attendees the tools to maximize success in the coming semester and to navigate the "new normal" to the best of their ability. For more information about our other programs for the month of August 2022, please visit the links below.

Jeffrey Bernstein (Professor of Political Science and Director of the Faculty Development Center) and Ann Blakeslee (Professor of English and Director of Campus and Community Writing) hosted a conversation about effective syllabi and provided an opportunity for attendees to share language from their syllabus that they like and to borrow language from others as well.
