Syllabus from Scratch (for Graduate Students)
Are you drafting a syllabus? Whether the syllabus is for the Teaching Scholars program, the academic job market, or a dream course in the future, join us to begin designing an effective syllabus from scratch. During the Syllabus from Scratch workshop, participants will learn about the elements of an effective syllabus, define course learning goals, and discuss assessments and grading that will promote student learning in their course. On October 25, we will offer a peer review session where participants will have an opportunity to share full drafts of their syllabi with peers and CTL staff for feedback and suggestions. Facilitated by Chris Chen, Center for Teaching and Learning.
By the end of the session, participants should be able to:
-Define and create course-level learning goals and measurable outcomes for each
-Design assignments/assessments to evaluate student learning
-Create intentional assessments that align with course learning goals
