The Syllabus: A Resource Guide
Various aspects of the syllabus have been studied, among them issues of tone, its use of images, its length, whether it’s “learner-centered,” and the effects of its being so or not. The studies highlighted here also illustrate the range of methodologies researchers have used to study the syllabus. This collection is more representative than comprehensive. The research questions the work below explores are mostly pragmatic, and that makes the findings of interest to faculty.
