The aim of this workshop series is to help you become more intentional and explicit in your syllabus design. Over the course of the workshop, we will consider what a syllabus does for a faculty member, what it does for students, and how it can improve learning and your relational engagement with students throughout the semester. This workshop typically takes place during J-term.
- Understand the spectrum of possibilities of what a syllabus can do and identify what you would like your own syllabus to do.
- Explore relevant frameworks including universal design, transparency, inclusivity, and student-centered syllabus design principles.
- Revise your working syllabus based on relevant frameworks, self-assessment, and peer feedback.
