CETL is currently conducting an IRB approved study on learning-focused courses. This workshop will introduce the participants to current research about creating a learning-centered syllabus, as well at the opportunity to actively make changes and improvements to their syllabus. By attending, participants will give their consent to become part of the research study. This study is supported by the rubric and research of: Palmer, M. S., Bach, D. J., & Streifer, A. C. (2014). Measuring the promise: A learning_focused syllabus rubric. To improve the academy: A journal of educational development, 33 (1), 14-36.

This will be an interactive workshop where most of the time will be spent working on syllabus revisions with the support of CETL consultants. To maximize the workshop time, participants will have to provide their syllabus in advance of the workshop. More information about the study and procedure will be provided closer to the date of the workshop.

Registration for this workshop will close a few weeks prior to the workshop date to allow for syllabi scoring.

Part Time Faculty Note: This workshop is uncompensated. Part-time faculty who participate will not be compensated but should still enter participation hours in the time management system.
