How to Create Your Own Syllabus > A few notes from the episode.
Why You Should Consider Course Books
- If you focus on a niche – a specific kind of student like Business English students, or children for example, you’ll only need to invest once in the material, and keep reusing it as you grow.
- Students tend to prefer structure and organization – course books can help you provide that.
- You are already crazy busy – adding the work of creating course materials will only add more to your already very full plate.
- Why not rely on the skills and expertise of someone who creates course materials for you – let them do what they love so you can focus on doing what you love: serving your students!
- Working with professionally created course material will make you and your freelance business look PROFESSIONAL!
