Creating a Brock University Course Syllabus
The resources on this page are designed to assist Brock University faculty and instructors create a course outline or syllabus that meets all the required components as outlined in the Academic Regulations section of the Brock University Faculty Handbook (http://www.brocku.ca/university-secretariat/facultyhandbook ).
Course outlines are a contract with students. They set out the expectations of the instructor in terms of the anticipated learning outcomes and they allow students to determine whether they can reasonably meet those expectations. To that end, there are a number of required components that must be on all Brock University course syllabi. Instructors are then welcome to add departmental or discipline specific information.
For assistance with developing or re-designing a course outline, please contact the CPI at ext 4392.
