Syllabus Construction: Foundations

Putting together a syllabus for the first time can be a daunting task. In this workshop, we cover the basic components of a syllabus, as well as practical and stylistic "do's-and-don'ts" of syllabus construction. Participants will leave the workshop knowing how to construct their own syllabus so that course information is clearly presented to students, and so that students' confusion over course assignments and expectations is kept to a minimum.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify and produce necessary features of a syllabus
• Identify optional features of a syllabus
• Construct a syllabus for a class

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative.

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.

If you have any special accommodation needs, please contact us at workshops@teaching.pitt.edu in advance.

Tuesday, November 27 at 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
