NUR653 DESIGNING A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Module 1 Assignment
Reflection: Considering the Syllabus
The syllabus is not only a contract between the instructor and students but also an attempt to optimize the learner-centered experience. A common concern of instructors is that students don’t read the syllabus and therefore miss vital information about course materials, instructor expectations, and course policy. Consider improvements and elements that are not traditionally included in the syllabus but would allow it to be more engaging and inviting. This is your time to think out of the box.
Reflect on your personal interaction with the course syllabus by addressing the questions below:
Do you read the entire course syllabus? If so, why? If not, why?
What actions could faculty take to improve student engagement with the syllabus?
What elements could a course instructor add to a course syllabus to make it more inviting and engaging for students?
