On the Components of a Syllabus Promoting Students’ Success: A Proven Template
Keywords:Syllabus, students, learning, template
The main goal of this article is to provide a practical way to create a good syllabus, one that continues to meet needs and acts in support of inclusivity as well as one which takes into account guides and structures for students’ success. The literature regarding syllabus design seems to be scant on the details and examples which might be more easily borrowed or used. In this paper, we provide a concrete and detailed example of a syllabus that includes all components promoting students’ success. Our template is applicable to any discipline and educational system.
