The Graphic Syllabus and the Outcomes Map: Communicating Your Course
By Linda B. Nilson

From the publisher…
An instructor’s topical organization is the basic framework of his or her course as well as the core of the syllabus. This book shows college instructors how to communicate their course organization to students in a graphic syllabus–a one-page diagram, flowchart, or concept map of the topical organization–and an outcomes map–a one-page flowchart of the sequence of student learning objectives and outcomes from the foundational through the mediating to the ultimate. It also documents the positive impact that graphics have on student learning and cautions readers about common errors in designing graphic syllabi.
