A well-designed syllabus featuring measurable and achievable learning objectives is the key to a successful semester, functioning as a road map for students as they navigate the course.  Your students will be well-prepared to meet your learning objectives if they understand what is important and what they are expected to know and be able to do as a result of completing the course.

This TNT Lunch will discuss elements of effective syllabi and learning outcomes with tips that you can apply. We welcome all instructors of face-to-face, hybrid, and online formats to join us.
