Event Date & Time
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
1. Explain the purpose(s) of a learning-centered syllabus, from the students’ and the
instructor’s perspective respectively.
2. List at least 10 items that might be included in a learning-centered syllabus.
3. Critically appraise whether a syllabus is learning-centered.
Facilitators: Manuel Dias and Gail Hammond.
