Eberly, Mary B.; Newton, Sarah E.; Wiggins, Robert A.
Journal of General Education, v50 n1 p56-74 2001
Describes a study conducted at Oakland University (Michigan) to examine the degree to which syllabi in general education classes reference general education guidelines. Finds that knowledge transmission was primary in syllabi, whereas skills and attitude development were less emphasized. Proposes that syllabi can be used better by promoting the implicit contract and defining expectations for instructor and student. (ontains 18 references.)(NB)
