Syllabus development is a key part of developing and maintaining class information. A learning-centered course syllabus is a learning plan for students and is required for every course that is offered at Yavapai College. The official Yavapai College course outline is the foundation for the course syllabus. The syllabus is also the guiding tool that students will use throughout the course. Since the syllabus is used to introduce the course, it is critical that it establishes a positive tone and constructive learning environment.
Every course syllabus must incorporate required components, including descriptions, learning outcomes, a calendar of assignments, and institutional policies. While instructors may prepare the course syllabus in the professional format that best represents the course and meets the needs of students, a template is available for easy, online syllabus development.
Important! A copy of your completed syllabus must be provided to your Division Dean or Instructional Assistant prior to the first class meeting.

Blackboard Collaborate meetings: Fall 2014 Schedule
So, what do you need to participate in a Collaborate Meeting? Well, be logged into your computer – with or without a camera. You can participate visually and /or just by voice. The first time may seem a little strange, but we’ll get the hang of it, and it’s a great way to keep in touch without the drive! If you need a camera, please let me know, and I’ll try to get one for you. For those of you who are not familiar with Blackboard Collaborate meetings, I’ll attach some information for you on the meeting announcement. On the day of the meeting – you can log in 5-10 minutes ahead and get your video/audio set up.
