Syllabus from Scratch Workshop

Are you drafting an original syllabus? Whether it’s for the Teaching Scholars program, the academic job market, or a dream course in the future, join us to begin designing an effective, student-centered syllabus from scratch. During this workshop, participants will learn about the elements of an effective syllabus, define course learning goals, and discuss assessments that can promote student learning in their course.

Journal Club sessions count towards track completion in the Teaching Development Program.

Date & Time: Wednesday, December 7, 1:10 – 2:25 PM
