The ability to create an effective syllabus is critical to the development of a successful course, and it is also important in the academic job search and your future academic position. In this workshop, we will discuss the process of developing a learning-centered syllabus that articulates your course objectives and sets a positive tone for learning. We will also analyze examples of real syllabi during the workshop.
