About this Episode
After “big picture teaching” last episode, Julia and Jonathan dive into the weeds a bit, spending a lot of time on the syllabus. Is it a contract? A way to communicate “hidden curriculum”? A fun way to connect with your students? In short, yes, and also, it depends. Also, maybe it’s unrealistic to expect students to carefully read all 20 pages of our syllabus without offering incentives (can you blame them?)?
