  • Course Design

Last modified: August 12, 2022

Every course must have a syllabus. Here you will find resources to help you craft a syllabus that will support your course objectives.

Syllabus Template and Resources

To help you create your syllabus, we've built an syllabus template. This template is created with accessibility in mind and contains content suggestions that will help your students understand expectations and be successful in your course. To use, download the template and follow the instructions to enter your course information. Once you've completed the course information, see the addendum of syllabus statements to find suggested and mandatory syllabus statements to include. All statements in the "Notices" section are mandatory syllabus inclusions. These statements are up-to-date with the latest guidance from the applicable offices.

Liquid Syllabi

A liquid syllabus is a an engaging multi-media syllabus instead of a traditional document. This type of syllabus has recently gained populartity, especially amongst online instructors. If you have an interest in creating a liquid syllabus, below is a helpful resource to walk you through using Google sites. Contact CELT for more help or to be connected with other UAS instructors using this method.

Open-Source course in creating a liquid syllabus - this course also contains many examples in the "Share with your peers!" module.

It is still recommended that you create a PDF of your site to add to your UAS Syllabus link in Blackboard since we do not currently have the capability to add a link instead.
