Write a Syllabus

All instructors of record create syllabi, and many professors ask that their GTAs develop syllabi and course policies for individual discussion, recitation, or lab sections. Your syllabus tells your students what your course is about, what the learning objectives are, and the ways a student can be successful in your course.  A complete and well-designed syllabus can help set the tone for a positive teaching and learning environment and acts as a contract that clearly details both student and instructor responsibilities.  Please start here with a page that explains essential campus policies related to syllabi and offers a template you can edit or copy text from.
