Here's How - Course Syllabus
Plan time at the beginning of the semester for students to review the syllabus, ask questions and clarify expectations. This may help resolve misunderstandings later on.
A permanent discussion forum dedicated to clarifying expectations can also be helpful.
A core component of your syllabus should include a list of assignments with specific details about each. Other considerations include:
- A breakdown of how assessments will be graded and calculated into overall marks.
- Policies regarding late assignments.
- Reading lists.
- Rubrics or marking criteria. (See sidebar)
