Joanne Healy, School of Education, likes the banners I make. Here’s the latest batch… her requests are fairly open-ended, so I can find the right mood to fit the need. Our department has access to a Shutterstock account. That and regular CC0 images make creating banners easier.
Guide students through your course verbally and visually. Whether your discipline is highly visual or not, using a picture to show the student where they are in the course or semester is helpful. You might want to use a quick video to show students how to navigate your course shell. If that’s not in the works consider providing a course calendar and course map. Both have value. Calendars are fairly easy to create while adding a course map can show how assignments flow from the topics you are delving into.
Take a moment to grab pen and paper, crayons, your laptop or whatever tools are at hand. Ask yourself what visual maps you use most. Use one of them as a template for what you build and deliver to your students.
