Liquid Syllabus

Exemplar thumbnail


Michelle Dang, Instructor from Sacramento State University, created this liquid syllabus to welcome students before the semester began. The liquid syllabus contains key information to help students get started and helps create a sense of engagement and community with the course. The students are practicing school nurses; hence, Michelle used images of school children to enhance engagement and connectedness.
