3. Tips for Syllabus Development

As one semester draws to a close, plans for the next semester are beginning. Creating a syllabus is one of those beginnings. In the latest email from the PEW FTLC, there is an excellent page of information for developing a syllabus that also includes sample policy statements that could prove useful. Feel free to share this link with your colleagues.
