In this book, Jack Gifford presents a professional approach to the development of syllabi, particularly those supported by electronic media. With more than 30 years of teaching experience, which has included the preparation and review of over 165 syllabi, Gifford has yet to find the '100% complete syllabi.' Many don't reflect internally consistent pre-planning, and most are not presented in a user-friendly manner. He explores the nine major steps essential to the conceptual development of any e-syllabus prior to creating the first word.
