Course Outline

Creating a course outline (or course syllabus) is more than just copying the course description from the calendar, including your information as the course director and identifying the grade breakdown for students.

The website of the Academic Standards, Curriculum and Pedagogy Committee (ASCP) contains a wealth of resources to assist you in creating your course outline, including Course Outline Guidelines and a Basic Course Outline Model (Word).

There is also some literature on using your course syllabus for Creating the Foundation for a Warm Classroom Climate and Syllabus Length and Use of Images: An Empirical Investigation of Student Perceptions
