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 mindful, learner-centered, inclusive syllabus, including considerations for the online environment.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:
• Explain the purpose(s) and benefits of an inclusive and learner-centered syllabus, from both the students’ and the instructor’s perspectives.
• Critically discuss elements of an inclusive and learner-centered syllabus.
• Identify strategies for consideration when developing an inclusive and learner-centered syllabus, particularly for the online environment.
