Faculty Course Information

Course Syllabi and Outlines

Course outlines, as stated in Article 29.3(c) of the Faculty Association Agreement, must be available for the students by the end of the first week of classes. An electronic copy should also be sent to your Administration Assistant who will advise the chair of receipt and file the syllabi in the Dean’s course outline directories.

Excerpt from the FA Agreement:

The outline shall include at least the following information:

(i) the name, office address, office telephone number, and weekly office hours of the Faculty Member;

(ii) the subject matter to be explored in the course; and

(iii) a list of all required assignments and examinations and the relative weight of assignments and examinations in the final assessment of student performance. A Faculty Member may consult with the class about office hours, subject matter of the course and assignments, examinations and their weighting, and provide the class, the Program Chair and Dean, copies of the course outline following this consultation;

As mentioned in the ‘Grading’ section, some programs have additional requirements that need to be included in the outlines.
