Syllabus Analysis Project

Content to be added. Under construction!

The Syllabus Analysis Project involves being paired with a practicing professor, observing the way they teach, conducting an interview with them, and making notes on their syllabus. Professors, both as a group and as individuals, have a process, rationale, and mode of thinking that differs from that of students and non-academic individuals. I have some experience as an educational leader, but I have never had the same level of pedagogical control as a professor, and if I hope to construct my own course plan and syllabus for Fall 2020, I will need the firsthand, hands-on instruction from a professor-mentor. This year is about learning pedagogical theory and threshold concepts, and such learning would be incomplete without practical experience.

In addition to theoretical analysis, the syllabus analysis will require an examination of content, structure, syntax, and document design.
