Course Outline Template

Course outlines are an agreement 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 outlines. Instructors are then welcome to add departmental or discipline specific information.

The following templates have been updated to be more accessible, as of May 2023. Visit CPI’s resource page for more information about Accessibility and Creating Accessible Classroom Documents.
