Jan. 22-23: Syllabus clinic
CTAL, ATS offer 'syllabus clinic' for University faculty members
10:10 a.m., Jan. 6, 2014--University of Delaware faculty members who are preparing for the spring semester are invited to drop-in to a syllabus clinic that will be offered Jan. 22-23 by colleagues from the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning (CTAL) and Academic Technology Services (ATS).
CTAL and ATS representatives will assist faculty members in enhancing what a syllabus communicates about course expectations to students. Faculty members might consider outlining a course, its goals, methods and assessments via a graphic, such as one featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as in more traditional ways.
Questions and curiosity about pedagogically appropriate integration of technology, social media and Sakai and or Canvas tools into courses will be addressed by ATS colleagues.
Faculty members can stop by the CTAL office, 212 Gore Hall, to chat over refreshments and check out the library. No appointment is needed.
For additional information on syllabus resources, see the CTAL website.

The clinic is offered at different times on two consecutive days to accommodate busy schedules and give faculty members dedicated time for syllabus refinement prior to the spring semester.
- Wednesday, Jan. 22, 9 a.m. to noon; and
- Thursday, Jan. 23, 1-4 p.m.
