Session E2: Change Your Syllabus, Change Your Life

CF 209

Presented by Elizabeth Sherowski

This session will explore the theory behind the learner-focused syllabus and how it improves teaching, learning, and overall satisfaction with the course. Professor Sherowski will discuss the transition from a rule-and-content-focused syllabus to a learner-focused syllabus and how that transition leads to better student outcomes, more engaged learners, and a happier professor. Attendees will have the opportunity to revise a portion of their own syllabus using what they have learned.

Session Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will understand the difference between a rule-and-content-focused syllabus and a learner-focused syllabus.
  2. Attendees will learn to use learner-focused syllabi to build a classroom community and include all students.
  3. Attendees will begin to revise their own syllabi to align with learner-focused design.
