A syllabus is one of the most significant documents of any course: it sets the tone and expectations for the entire semester, and expresses the instructor's core pedagogical values and approaches to teaching and learning. Despite the best of intentions on the part of instructors when they prepare theirs, students report hearing from their syllabus what was not intended. What will students hear when they receive your syllabus?
In this 1½ hour workshop, we will explore "syllabus talk" and learn ways to capitalize on it in order to influence student interest and investment in your course. We will also review a newly-developed, research-based syllabus rubric that assesses the degree to which a syllabus achieves a learning-foucsed orientation. Participants should bring a copy of a current syllabus to this workshop.
