Curriculum, Pedagogy, Course Design

Welcome to the School of Education's teaching resource page. Questions about the general "how-tos" of working in the School are covered in our Faculty & Staff Resources  page.

This page is intended to serve as working repository for materials that support our continuous effort at instructional excellence. We know we're only as good as we are willing to engage in difficult and risky conversations about classroom practice, student learning, and equity. So everything here is offered in the spirit of conversation, self-reflection, and engaged critical practice.

Below you'll find the most current  syllabi for courses in the School, as well as suggestions for experimenting with various educational  practices and pedagogical problems we're all engaged in thinking deeply about. The science and art of teaching and learning are sustained by open questions refined by repetitive inquiry. We hope what you find here deepens your practice and enriches your students. Please share with us what you discover along the way.

Master Syllabi

Courses in the School of Education carry one of five alpha prefixes: EDUC, EDUG, EDSP, MALT, or CMHC. Because programs of study may include courses from different departments, you need to know your course prefix and number to locate a syllabus for a class on this page. The department name or course title may not be as helpful in locating materials, as many courses can be crosslisted.

Master syllabi contain the required learning outcomes and textbooks approved by the department faculty. But we encourage all instructors to personalize and customize other aspects of a syllabus to reflect the course as they teach it. Should you have questions, please contact your department chair or the Associate Dean for Operations and Faculty Development.

Syllabus Design

SOE Syllabus Template

The following template coordinates design and policy dimensions across the School of Education by providing clear directions about required syllabus elements and preferred language for uniform policies like academic integrity and disability accommodations.

It is our goal to allow all instructors to design courses drawing on their expertise. We understand and trust that while learning outcomes are shared, the paths to succeeding in those objectives are not scripted. Please talk to your respective chairs or the Associate Dean about your latitude in customizing you course syllabus.
