Far more than a merely logistical document, the syllabus is often an instructor's opening move in their efforts to build a relationship with and shape students' learning experience. It is also the concrete public artifact that makes an instructor's course design visible. In this workshop we will cover the fundamental components and best practices of good syllabus design through discussion and a hands-on opportunity to practice “backwards design.”

This workshop is being offered as part of the Apprenticeship in Teaching Program, designed for graduate students.
