The Course Syllabus: A Learning-Centered Approach
Wiley, Mar 28, 2008 - Education - 132 pages
When it was first published in 1997, The Course Syllabus became the gold standard reference for both new and experienced college faculty. Like the first edition, this book is based on a learner-centered approach. Because faculty members are now deeply committed to engaging students in learning, the syllabus has evolved into a useful, if lengthy, document. Today's syllabus provides details about course objectives, requirements and expectations, and also includes information about teaching philosophies, specific activities and the rationale for their use, and tools essential to student success.

Review: The Course Syllabus: A Learning-Centered ApproachUser Review - Michael Evans - Goodreads
If you write your syllabus as this book suggests, prepare to drop a tome on students' laps. The book contains many great principles, but doesn't do a good job of prioritizing them. Read full review

I am so glad that I read this as I prepare to rewrite my syllabi. Lots of great insight into reworking my courses to accommodate today's students and help myself become more of a facilitator than a lecturer. Read full review
