On-Campus Teaching Toolkit

This instructional resource was developed to help faculty create a syllabus with elements relevant to teaching face-to-face, on campus (ONCAM) courses at UIC. The syllabus template is organized into sections that you might consider including in your syllabus. Attention was paid to suggesting language for each section that conveys a welcoming tone and helps to create an ethos of inclusion, academic integrity, and community in your class. Additional resources include the COVID-19 syllabus statements, part or all of which we highly recommend adding to your syllabus this fall, and an inclusive syllabus checklist, which is a tool to help instructors incorporate syllabus elements that communicate your intention to foster an inclusive learning environment. The Synchronous Teaching Toolkit also serves as a resource hub where faculty can directly connect to educational technology resources and support in ACCC relevant to face-to-face, in-person instruction.

Syllabus Template for Teaching On Campus Courses

The syllabus template is a teaching guide that includes suggested language for a broad array of issues and contingencies that may be relevant to your class.  You may utilize any of the language therein for your syllabus.
