Best Practices in Developing a Learner-Centered Syllabus, College Street, Caritas
As more instructors make their syllabus available on the LMS for students to review prior to class beginning, there seems to be an opportunity to positively influence students’ perceptions of the instructor, and thus set positive expectations for the course (Richmond, Slattery, Mitchell, Morgan, & Becknell, 2016). Join us during this lunch 'n learn as Dr. Robin Morgan, Indiana University Southeast Director for the Institute for Learning and Teaching Excellence, discusses best practices for learner-centered syllabi. This session is particularly useful for faculty creating a new course, redesigning an existing course, or refashioning an existing course into a "writing-intensive" course.
