08/22/17 What’s in Your Syllabus? Facilitator: Cynthia Brame, CFT Assistant Director
The syllabus is one of the first ways we communicate with our students, conveying what the course will be about, how it will be run, and why it’s important. It can also be an important planning document for faculty, helping them describe plans and expectations. How can we make the syllabus welcoming, informative, and helpful for ourselves and our students? In this interactive session, we will discuss some important elements to consider in constructing a syllabus, from statements on inclusivity to grading policies, as well as approaches for getting students to actually read the syllabus. Participants will bring a draft syllabus to review with colleagues, leaving with ideas for adapting it for the start of the fall semester.
