4.1. Course Syllabus (Book)

The Course Syllabus is posted as a book resource in the general course area (as is this Student Handbook). Students must read this carefully at the beginning of the course so they know what to expect and can plan their time accordingly. The book is divided into several chapters and sub-chapters. 

Generally, the Course Syllabus sections include:

  • Course Outline - This section presents the general information including course description and learning objectives.
  • Evaluation - This section presents a full description of the required assignments including grading criteria and due date.
  • Topical Content - This section presents a topical breakdown, summary of course learning activities, and important deadlines. It is followed by a preview of the specific learning requirements for each topic.
