Designing Your Own Class
As graduate students, we are often tasked to teach off the syllabus of one of our professors. On the job market, we are often expected to send our own syllabi as part of our applications. If we stay in academia, we all move on to teach our own classes at some point. This workshop is designed to help graduate students think about how to design their own syllabi. This workshop will consider some of the following questions in a group setting: how you might adapt someone else’s syllabus, how you write design a course around your own research, and what to do about assignments and grade breakdowns. We will explore these questions in ways that will help all participants feel confident in designing their own course, be it for their job market presence or for next semester here at Penn.
