I read this post on revamping your syllabus back in 2011 and really, really wanted to redo mine. But I just felt I couldn’t justify the time involved.
This summer I read Ken Bain’s book on What The Best College Teachers Do, and decided screw it, it is worth it.
Here’s my first stab at my redesign for my General Psychology, Motivation & Emotion, and Physiological Psychology classes. I’ll tweak them and make them better, but really happy so far.
