Co-Creating Course Syllabi | College STAR

Co-Creating Course Syllabi | College STAR | Center for Teaching Excellence Resource Center | Scoop.it

Personalizing learning through the co-creation of a course syllabus
One way to personalize learning is through the co-creation of a course syllabus. In this method, the instructor obtains preferences for course structure, policies, and content and using these, plans the course with students instead of for students. As a part of this procedure, oftentimes students are able to share how they would like instruction delivered (lecture, discussion, case studies, etc.) and may even be able to contribute to class policies (late work policies, grading rubrics, meeting formats such as hybrid, face-to-face, or online).   They may have a say in what content is covered (focusing more in depth on one area and not discussing a different area the students are already familiar with or through the use of textbooks or research articles) and how they would like to be assessed (essays, multiple choice tests, presentations, etc.).
