Synchronous Teaching Toolkit
This teaching resource was developed to help instructors create a syllabus with elements relevant to teaching a synchronous online course 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 you may consider updating and adding to your syllabus this semester, 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 instructors can directly connect to educational technology resources and support for synchronous instruction.
