Syllabus 101: Roadmap to Success
Your course syllabus is one of the most important documents you create for your class. It serves as an agreement between you and your students about your goals for the course and your expectations for your students, plus it conveys a first–and lasting–impression with your students. This session will provide information about the important components of a syllabus, ways in which you can enhance your course syllabus, and strategies for using your syllabus as a learning tool. This is a three-day, fully online, asynchronous, facilitated course in Canvas. The workshop consists of readings, illustrations, self-checks, and two final assessments. To be marked as complete for this workshop, you will need to complete both the discussion forum and the final assessment. You may take the final assessment as many times as you need to, but you must receive at least 85% on the assessment to be marked as complete for the workshop.  You should plan to work consistently throughout the workshop to complete the readings, self-checks, and final assessments during the three day time limit. The workshop should take around one hour to complete. This workshop counts towards the Essentials of Teaching and Learning Certificate.
