Event Description

Your syllabus is an important document that introduces the course and you to the students. It also sets forth your responsibilities and those of your students. Though templates exist for syllabus creation, there are many choices and a multitude of subtleties to consider when designing this document. In this session, we explore the characteristics and benefits of a learning-centered syllabus.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  1. Explain the purpose(s) and benefits of a learning-centered syllabus, from the students’ and the instructor’s perspective respectively.
  2. Identify the strategies that should be considered when developing a learning-centered syllabus.
  3. Critically appraise whether a syllabus is learning-centered.
