Making Your Syllabus Work for You and Your Students

December 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Facilitators:
Megan Burnett, Associate Director, CTSI
Samantha Chang, Faculty Liaison, Anti-Racist Pedagogies, CTSI
Emily Hector, Liaison Librarian, Education, UTL

A well-crafted syllabus ensures that students understand the essential requirements for participating and succeeding in a course. A well-designed syllabus can also serve as a learning tool to enhance students’ experience in the course, beyond listing course policies and due dates. This practical, interactive session will consider the essential elements of an effective syllabus, review current best practices in syllabus design and examine a model University of Toronto course syllabus. As a participant in this session, we ask that you have one of the following at hand during the workshop:

  • A proposed course syllabus for a new course you would like to teach one day
    OR
  • A course syllabus for an existing U of T course you are seeking to refresh

The goal of this workshop is for each participant to leave with a well-developed plan for revising/crafting a powerful syllabus that works for both instructor and learner. Participants who join the session without a document to work from and discuss in break-out groups will not benefit as fully from this session.

Please note this is a repeat of the Aug. 29, 2023 Tune into Teaching Workshop
