Event Description

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 22–26, 2022.

Your syllabus is an important document that lets students know about you and your course. Beyond providing standard contact information, learning objectives, course content and a schedule, it also includes how you will promote learning by building a partnership with your students. In this session, we explore the characteristics and benefits of a mindful, learner-centered and inclusive syllabus.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to identify elements of an inclusive and learner-centred syllabus, and explain the purpose(s) and benefits of an inclusive and learner-centered syllabus, from both the student and the instructor perspectives.
