Part I in the Course Development & Syllabus Design series is a presentation that will provide an overview of some major components of course development and demonstrate how curriculum guides the course design process. Focusing on three main questions of course planning, i.e. who, what, and how, this session will guide participants in prioritizing students’ learning, selecting course content in accordance with learning outcomes, and customizing teaching methods and assignments for learner needs. Curriculum Studies Professor Patricia Halagao will take the participants through steps of course planning and offer a roadmap for designing a new course.

In this workshop, facilitators, Michael Nassir, Department of Physics & Astronomy, and Hazel Gedikli, the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), will guide participants in their process of drafting or revising a working syllabus for their new course. Participants will receive feedback from colleagues from other departments and disciplines. 

Participants will: 

  • Workshop a working syllabus draft
  • Review their tentative objectives & goals for a new or revised course
  • Outline one or two assignments related to achieving general set of skills and/or applying achieved skills to real life situations.

*Participants to the second part of the series are asked to have a working draft of their new course syllabus ready for the workshop.
