How to write competencies and objectives (The college is creating a standardized database of what we teach, and when/where we teach it. We are communicating what we teach in terms of what we want the students to know when they finish each course. This 3 – page document explains how to write these competencies/objectives.)
There are many different items that need to go into a syllabus. CELT has created an easy to follow checklist to help you start creating your own course syllabus. It also includes Iowa State University recommended syllabus statements that you can copy and paste.
Creating content is often the most time-consuming part of preparing to teach. These resources provide tips on planning your course content to accurately target the learning objectives, instructions and assessments that lead to student achievement.
