The 21st-Century Syllabus: Tips for Putting Andragogy into Practice
Lund Dean, Kathy; Fornaciari, Charles J.
Journal of Management Education, v38 n5 p724-732 Oct 2014
In our previous article about reconceptualizing the course syllabus, we argued that instructors must move syllabi beyond their traditional pedagogically-inspired focus on operational course norms if the syllabus is to remain relevant as a teaching and learning tool. Here, we take the andragogical ideas developed in the prior article and provide educators with seven practical and concrete tips for syllabus development efforts that are more consistent with co-learning communities and shared learning outcomes.
