Description

Syllabi serve several important purposes, the most basic of which is to communicate course content, goals and expectations to students, colleagues and accreditors. Syllabi also serve as a guide for faculty on how to plan, implement, evaluate and improve instruction. A well-crafted syllabus that prioritizes equity and inclusion in its tone, content and assessment of student learning can lay the groundwork for a dynamic and engaged classroom environment. This interactive workshop will begin with an overview of the main components of inclusive syllabi, including a discussion of course goals and outcomes, as well as student engagement and evaluation. It will also move to a consideration of how to incorporate practices and strategies that support diverse learning needs and an equitable classroom.
