Beyond the Contract: Pedagogy and Developing the Course Syllabus

Thursday, March 24, 2022
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

The syllabus is a requisite document in higher education. While often viewed as a form of contract, a syllabus reflects, implicitly or explicitly, an instructor’s pedagogical approach to teaching and learning. How do we understand the role of this powerful tool within a classroom? What are the basics of building a syllabus and how might we move beyond contractual approaches to conceptualizing and crafting a syllabus that reflects our own pedagogy and objectives in teaching and learning? This workshop is designed for current and aspiring Teaching Fellows, Assistants, and Post-Doctoral Fellows. Participants will collaboratively review example syllabi and are invited to bring their own. Topics covered will include core syllabus elements, various conceptual approaches, and the promises and pitfalls of innovating syllabi. Attending the Introduction to Concepts in University Teaching and Learning and/or Assessment Practices for University Teaching and Learning workshops is recommended but not required.
