A syllabus is more than a checklist of items to do.
It should do more than dictate. It is communication.
It sets the tone for the course-
Express expectations and outcomes intended.
Objectives should be listed, as well as deadlines.
(Other information, course sensitive: Lab materials or calendar,
Writing lab resources, Plagiarism policies, etc.)
THINGS THE SYLLABUS CAN HELP COMMUNICATE:
*Students need to understand what is expected from them.
*They need to understand their purpose / what outcomes they can look
forward to / how their lives are improved by taking the course.
*It should be well-written to prevent misunderstandings throughout course.
*Tell how grades are calculated; When assignments are due.
