Event Description
Putting together a syllabus for the first time can be a daunting task. In this workshop, we cover the basic components of a syllabus, as well as practical and stylistic "do's-and-don'ts" of syllabus construction. Participants will leave the workshop knowing how to construct their own syllabus so that course information is clearly presented to students, and so that students' confusion over course assignments and expectations is kept to a minimum. Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…• Identify and produce necessary features of a syllabus• Identify optional features of a syllabus • Construct a syllabus for a class This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative.
