Writing a syllabus

A well-written syllabus is the beginning of a successful learning experience for your students. They will be well-prepared for meeting your learning objectives if they understand why the course is important to them, what they will be able to do when they have completed the course, why you use particular teaching methods and assign specific readings and activities, and why you have chosen a particular grading style.
