Constructing a Course Syllabus

Randy Haldeman, Pedram Leilabady

Abstract


The Course Syllabus is easily the most important document that you will prepare for a course: it sets the tone of the course, determines the depth, scope and sequence of the content, explicates boundaries and expectations for student and instructor behaviors and interaction, establishes the procedures and norms of assessment, and provides resources for additional information and context. This document will guide you to prepare a syllabus that not only meets the legal and accreditation standards for UNC Charlotte, but also serves as a dynamic curricular resource for both your students and yourself. This document serves as a textual companion to the accompanying syllabus templates for Microsoft Word and Moodle.
