Course Outline Template

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.

Due to COVID-19, language around late extensions have been added for compassionate medical absences and information about recording of lectures.
