Teaching and Learning Links to See: August 29th, 2014

Welcome back to a new semester, USF faculty! We hope that this weeks' links will give you some inspiration to kick-start the Fall term.

Teaching & Learning Links to See This Week
A roundup of five intriguing or informative posts and articles from the around the internet:

"From the Archives: The First Week of the Academic Term"
A collection of articles from the ProfHacker archives on a wide range of start-of-the-semester topics.

"Why I'm Asking You Not to Use Laptops"
Are you of the opinion that your students shouldn't use their electronic devices in class, but don't know how to enforce your policy without resistance? This article (and a number of the comments) offers some solutions.

"Turn Your Syllabus into an Inforgraphic"
It's a little too late to re-vamp your syllabus for this semester, but never too early to think about the future (especially since we've all got syllabi on the brain right now)!

"The 5 Key Features of Project-Based Learning"
This short article contains an accompanying video that breaks down the features of PBL and examples of how it's being implemented. (Note: the video uses K-12 examples, but the message can be applied to Higher Ed).

"Don't Email Me"
An interesting look at how one instructor addressed the issue of too many student emails.
