Designing a Syllabus for an Effective and Flexible Course

Facilitated by Sarah Sokhey, Assistant Professor, Political Science.

A well-designed syllabus has the potential to set the tone for an entire course and provide a blueprint for dealing with common challenges in the classroom. This FTEP session will address three main goals of syllabus design: 1) effectively communicating why the course is interesting and relevant, 2) designing the course so that it is well-organized, but also flexible allowing you to adapt the content of the course as you go, and 3) preempting potential complaints and problems by anticipating common issues.
