Course Description

Your course syllabus is an important document in organizing a rich learning experience and communicating course details and expectations to your students. Sharing it in Canvas is a great way to keep it easily accessible to students. Through this session, you will be able to create your course syllabus to include the elements required under the Academic Courses Policy, incorporate elements of who you are as a person and educator, and provide your students with a road map of their learning. This session will also explore how to schedule important course dates to appear in the students' calendars.
