Syllabus Development

An extensive syllabus development workshop was held in May 2016 and will be offered again in May 2018. The workshop consists of a week of in-person discussions, homework, design, and reflection.

Example weekly schedule for 2016 workshop: Development 2016

During the May 2018 workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to work through effective teaching strategies in order to fully develop course syllabi and assignments that connect with Research that Reaches Out student learning outcomes at the Explore or Express levels. Participants receive valuable feedback from workshop facilitators and from fellow participants, and the workshop comes with a $1,000 course development stipend.

Applications for the May 2018 workshop will be available in March 2018. For those interested, the application carries an expectation that the participant teach an Explore/Express course in 2018-2019 or 2019-2020.
