I love this. Because of bureaucratic requirements we keep having to add material to our syllabi that render them almost unreadable. One syllabus was so long (27 pages) I ended up writing a synopsis to alert students to the contents that actually affected them.
What a monster of a syllabus! That’s why I love this “infographic” approach … It is visually appealing and tells students what they need to know about the logistics of the course.
