Syllabus from Scratch (Part 1)

Are you drafting a syllabus for next year? Whether your syllabus is for the Teaching Scholars program, the academic job market, or a dream course you want to teach in the future, join us for lunch and conversation about designing effective syllabi from scratch. During this first workshop of the Syllabus from Scratch series, you will learn about the elements of an effective syllabus, define course learning goals, and discuss assessments and grading that will promote student learning in your course. On January 16, we will offer a subsequent workshop where participants will have an opportunity to share full drafts of their syllabi with peers and CTL staff for feedback and suggestions. This workshop is facilitated by Ian Althouse, Chris Chen, and Chandani Patel, Center for Teaching and Learning. Lunch will be provided.

Register here for Part 2:
