A syllabus is a guiding document that maps out course requirements and expectations. Since the syllabus is one of the first documents students will see in the course, making a good impression is important. The syllabus can lay out expectations and policies while using a welcoming tone. The syllabus generally includes a course calendar and schedule, a description of university policies, a list of student support services, grading and assignment guidelines, a description of the technology requirements, a set of guidelines for discussion, a list of course materials, and a list of course goals and outcomes. Below you can find some resources to help you as you craft your syllabi.
