In the university setting, a syllabus can be the primary means of communicating course objectives as well as instructor expectations. A well-crafted syllabus ensures that students understand the essential requirements for participating and succeeding in a course. But how do we put it all together? How do we make a syllabus that is a clear, meaningful, and accessible resource for our students?

This session will highlight elements that can make a syllabus a learning tool for your course and some best practices to consider when developing a syllabus that encourages student use. Attendees will receive take-away resources and guidelines that will help them to create or revise their own syllabus.
