Course Design:
Designing a Syllabus

Welcome to the second micro-course of our Course Design series! We are thrilled you have decided to check out our short course on developing or revising a syllabus. The Course Design series incorporates course design tutorials and resources combined with self-assessment and reflection exercises focused on key instructional topics. This experience is an opportunity to build upon or enhance higher education course design skills and to create multiple products.

This one-hour course contains video tutorials, a syllabus design template,  and a playlist of resources on how to develop or revise a course syllabus based on the course goals, learning activities, and assessments.  At the end of this course, participants will need to pass the self-assessment to receive the digital badge of completion.  In addition to the digital badge, participants that complete all five courses in the Course Design series will receive a certificate of completion from the Studio for Teaching & Learning Innovation at William & Mary.

By the end of this course, instructors will be able to:
-Deconstruct example syllabi in order to identify structure of the course and relationship between texts and assignments.
-Conceptualize story, purpose, and audience for a course syllabus of their own.
-Develop or revise a syllabus to be clear and engaging using provided syllabus template.

We hope you find the learning activities and resources in this course valuable. The folks at STLI are here to help at any stage of your journey teaching at William & Mary!
