2015 marks in inaugural year for the Sharing Academic Practices Fortnight being offered by ICT, University Library, and the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness. The event has been planned in partnership with Faculty members from across campus. This year, the event is comprised of two weeks of workshops, talks, celebrations, as well as dedicated time for Instructors to progress teaching and learning projects all centred around enhancing teaching practice.
In this gathering participants will come to understand the strengths and limitations of land-based teaching and learning, through personal experience. Participants will spend a half-day at Pike Lake, in the afternoon, with Alex Wilson. Lunch and refreshments will be served.
Your course syllabi can be very important to the students in your classes, providing them with information on assignments, quizzes and exams, your office hours and other valuable information about the class. But, your syllabus can also show students about who you are as a person and an instructor through its format and tone.
The University of Saskatchewan Academic Courses Policy details the requirements of what should be included in every syllabus. This session will look at creating a course syllabus with this policy in mind.
