Afternoon Breakout 2a: Setting the Right Tone: Syllabus Workshop
The course syllabus is used to communicate essential and required information about your course. Broadly speaking, this communication conveys what the course is about, what its focus will be, how it will be taught, and what students must do to succeed in the course. However, the course syllabus sets the tone for your class. Creating a student-centered syllabus can help develop a more engaging and open learning environment.  In this session, we will go over information that your syllabus is required to contain as well as suggestions for crafting a syllabus that has the student’s point of view in mind.
