Preparing & Personalizing the Course Syllabus Using the New U of S Template

Summer Workshop with Heather Ross & Kim West
1:30 PM to 3:30 PM

MURRAY 50

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. Based on this policy and with consultations from a variety of stakeholders across the institution, the U of S Instructional Design Group created a syllabus template and accompanying guide.

This session will look at the new U of S syllabus template and guide, along with ways to personalize your class syllabi. It will also look at the portion of the Academic Courses Policy related to the syllabus and how it has changed in the past year.

Participants should be prepared to engage actively in this session and to bring at least one existing syllabus from a class they have taught or will be teaching.  By the end of the workshop, participants will hopefully have a clearer sense of what to include in their course syllabus, including ideas on how to present syllabi in both creative and authentic ways.
