The Syllabus Template supports faculty as they develop courses and prepare to teach classes at the NYU School of Professional Studies. A syllabus is an impactful document that sets the tone for the course.1 It is the first contact between faculty and students, and should communicate enthusiasm for the subject matter, challenge and inspire students, and connect subject matter with a relevant, real-world context. High quality syllabi serve as a:

  • Road map: connects learning objectives with assignments, course materials, and teaching methods through an engaging learning journey with a specific schedule and milestones.
  • Contract: describes expected interactions between faculty and students and highlights communication expectations, teaching philosophy, and feedback channels.
  • Invitation: encourages the sharing of perspectives from a diverse body of students who range in age, culture, learning preferences, skill levels, and professional backgrounds.
  • Scholarly Paragon: sets the standard for scholarship by incorporating writing in all aspects of the course including learning strategies and assessment, maintains high and consistent standards for all students, and summarizes the best teaching literature on a topic.

Resources:

    1. Function and Components of a Syllabus – Harvard Bok Center
    2. Four Questions to Pose to Your Syllabus – Harvard Bok Center
