The School of Graduate Studies will sponsor a teaching workshop for both new and current graduate students along with new UND Faculty and Instructors.
This workshop is brought to you in partnership with the Teaching Transformation and Development Academy as part of the School of Graduate Studies teaching workshop series.
A well-crafted syllabus ensures that students understand the essential requirements and instructor's expectations for participating and succeeding in a course. Therefore, a syllabus is more than just a place to list course policies and due dates. A well-designed syllabus can also serve as a learning tool to enhance student's overall experience in the course. This session will identify the essential elements of an effective syllabus, review current best practices in syllabus design, explore Universal Design for Learning and accessibility guidelines, and examine a University of North Dakota syllabus template checklist. As a participant in this session, we ask that you bring a copy of a syllabi for a course you have taught in the past or one you will be teaching in the future. The copies can either be hard copy or digital. Participants will then work in pairs to provide feedback on each other's syllabi with TTaDA Instructional Designers providing additional guidance. Time will be given in the session for faculty to make changes to their syllabi based on feedback.
