Syllabus review

Every ICaP syllabus is reviewed by a team of ICaP instructors, staff, and administrators from the Department of English. We will have two deadlines for Spring 2018:

  • Submit by December 15 to receive a review before December 22.
  • Submit by January 1 to receive a review by January 4.

Please use the Spring 2018 syllabus checklist (PDF) to complete your syllabus. There are five changes from Fall 2017:

  1. Including a statement about academic honesty was mistakenly omitted from the previous checklist, though reviewers did look for it. This has been corrected.
  2. Similarly, including addressing disability accommodations was also omitted. This has also been corrected.
  3. We provide a statement from the Writing Lab and invite you to include it if you like.
  4. Under “Attendance,” we clarify the PUSH/ODOS approach to medical absences (a frequent question).
  5. Under “Participation,” we suggest including a rubric if you grade participation.

Please email Bradley Dilger your syllabus as an attachment. (No need to use FileLocker as in the past.)

  1. We prefer .docx, .doc, or .odt to facilitate review, but .pdf is okay as well.
  2. Please use a filename which begins with your lastname and first initial, e.g. “reingoldd-106-spring-2018.docx”.
  3. If your syllabus and calendar are separate, no need to merge them.
  4. If you’re teaching more than one course, one email including syllabi for all your courses will suffice.
