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.
