As you well know, the syllabus and schedule provide a big-picture view of the course for your students. Together they are perhaps the most important documents you can create for your students, primarily because they describe and chart what the course is about, how you will teach it, and what students will do to learn. After reading the syllabus, your students should feel that major questions have been answered, and they should have an inkling what kind of teaching philosophy you will bring to the course.
Before preparing your syllabus, think through the content, activities, and assessments needed to help students meet the learning objectives.
