Having a syllabus set up for the course so the students know what to expect from Day 1 will make them feel safe.

"A student needs to feel and secure. Understanding the grading criteria. Understanding how to communicate with the instructor." Simple but so true. Thanks Betsi.

Agreed --- communication is key. The icing on the cake is a great set of guidelines and expectations. I always appreciated when an educator stayed true to their word and followed up on any of my outreach. Thank you for sharing!
