Peer2Peer Workshop - Beyond Best Practices: Aligning Your Syllabi with Your Teaching Persona and Philosophy

Emily Amedee, MA
Your syllabus serves to set the foundation of your course. While there are wide-range of “best practices” available to guide you, in this workshop you will have an opportunity to fine tune your syllabus to align with both your teaching persona and philosophy. Often, we model the format, curriculum, and language of past syllabi. This workshop gives you a chance to reflect on whether or not you are modeling the language, expectations, and tone that will elevate the quality of your course. We will cover some “musts,” but we will focus greater attention on making thoughtful choices around language, policies, and other opportunities to leverage the syllabus as a document to galvanize community. This workshop is not designed to address content/curriculum choices, but we will talk about some fundamental “decolonizing” principles for future exploration.

Please come prepared with a copy of a syllabus that you currently use or are working on for your teaching portfolio. Working with an existing syllabus is key to this workshop. If you don't have a syllabus of your own, please bring one you're familiar with (from a class you've TA'd for or taken).
Please also come prepared with your teaching persona in mind and a copy of your teaching philosophy (if you have one).

This is the third installment in TILT Peer2Peer Workshop Series which allows graduate students to share their knowledge, interest, and research as related to teaching and pedagogy. This workshop counts toward the Graduate Teaching Certificate. Lunch will be provided.
