A Colloquium Concerning Syllabi (Killeen, Texas, November 1, 1990).
Dixon, Terry P.; And Others
The colloquium reported in this document was conducted as part of the assessment process of the University of Central Texas in an attempt to suggest qualities for effective syllabi. The colloquium resulted from a student perception survey conducted by the university in fall 1989 which indicated non-congruence between what was stated in the university syllabi and what actually occurred in a course. Following a copy of the colloquium announcement and a succinct introduction on its purposes and anticipated uses, is a brief review of the literature concerning syllabi which defines and discusses the definition, characteristics, and sections of a syllabus, philosophies for establishing syllabi, a student's perspective of a syllabus and course descriptions in relation to syllabi. Two subsequent sections comprise first, a transcript of presentations, comments, and questions by participants; and second, the results of an evaluation survey of the colloquium conducted in November 1990. Appended are an organizing memorandum for the colloquium; selected examples of syllabi mentioned in the colloquium; the evaluation survey; and a list of participants. (LPT)
