Many of our instructors tell us that they wish they had been provided guidance in developing a syllabus before they taught their first course. In this workshop, we'll begin to develop a syllabus for the course of your choosing. We will discuss the importance of learning outcomes, and interactively explore an online tool to help craft them. The development of thoughtfully designed learning outcomes will help you in subsequently creating quality learning activities, assignments and finally, assessments for the course. Other tips and advice for syllabus development will be discussed, and attendees are invited to bring a partial draft of their syllabus for discussion with other participants in a small group setting.
