A college course begins with reviewing the syllabus for the course, I’ve linked mine here.
My syllabus has several roles
- Contract—here’s what you can expect of me, here’s what I expect from you.
- Compass—here’s where we are heading and in what timeframe.
- Culture—here’s how I’m generally going to comport myself with you.
In this course you will learn about the different ways that people from a variety of cultures and historical contexts have responded to perennial problems and how those responses have sculpted our contemporary situation.
