Creating an inclusive syllabus to support student success

August 23 @ 2:00 pm

NEW DATE & TIME!

In-person workshop

Are you updating or creating a syllabus for your fall semester course? Your course syllabus can be a powerful tool that can effectively establish classroom norms, performance expectations and foster student engagement. Research has shown that the tone, content and design of a course syllabus can directly affect students’ perception of instruction, the choice to pursue a subsequent major, and their decision to engage with faculty outside of the classroom.

Using research and established guidelines, we will:

  • Self-assess your syllabus for components of an inclusive, engaging, and informative syllabus that supports student success.
  • Identify language and design elements that promote equity, belonging, and growth mindset.
  • Discuss strategies to help your students read and engage with the syllabus.

Attendees are asked to bring a paper copy of their syllabus to revise and annotate during the workshop.
