  • 3.

    Include reminder about attendance and late work if those influence a student’s grade.

  • 4.

    As with the entire syllabus, this is an excellent opportunity for faculty to reflect on how they will measure student performance as it relates to student learning, changes in their discipline, and expectations.

**Students with Disabilities:

  • 1.

    Angelo State University is committed to the principle that no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of the university, or be subjected to discrimination by the university, as provided by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), and subsequent legislation.

**Course Outline/Calendar/Schedule

  • 1.

    Be as detailed and specific as you can. Like other parts of the syllabus, a schedule affords us an opportunity to reflect on the material we teach and the relationship between our class time and student learning.

  • 2.

    We must provide students the opportunity to plan. As a community, we expect our students to meet deadlines and plan their work. We owe them the same courtesy.

  • 3.

    Include due dates for major assignments and other means of assessment. Omitting this information has a serious impact on students’ ability to plan and learn.

  • 4.

    If possible, include information that connects assignments to your course objectives and student learning outcomes.

  • 5.

    Avoid changing due dates and assignments throughout the semester. Course execution matters to students and helps them learn.

  • 6.

    Obviously, though schedules change and you should maintain that flexibility. Make the students aware that you reserve the right to change the calendar if necessary. If you know you will change your schedule, offer the students information about how to find out about changes.

Additional Information: 1. You might find it useful to discuss specific university services available to students.
