This is the first year where I’ve had free reign over my courses. I can make my own syllabi and do whatever I want with my classes. (Yay to being a new faculty member!) As I sat down to prepare my syllabi, I was given some advice from my department chair; she told me that our students typically aren’t great test takers. Okay, no problem. This got me thinking about other ways that students can engage with the material.
A new school year dawns and with it, a whirlwind of course prep, in-services, and last minute advising abounds! To lend a hand, The Novice Professor has combed our archives for past posts that might provide some inspiration. Check out our list below!!!
