WHAT BELONGS IN A SYLLABUS?
WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR IN GRADING? *Class Name – what school – dates class would be taken – credit hours *Instructor information – best contact method for students *Course objectives / student expectations *Course materials *Course calendar *Major Assignments due with timeline and grading (points or percentages) *Communicate connection from assignments back to objectives *Other information: Attendance/Tardy policy, Plagiarism policy, Resources
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. Course materials. Course calendar. (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.
