No detailed examination of course syllabi in academia exists, a void that Benefits of Model Syllabi seeks to fill. This comprehensive and timely work defines, explains, and illustrates the concrete features exhibited by model syllabi, in contrast to routine syllabi, in an effort to demonstrate how model syllabi foster positive synergies and enhance teaching and learning experiences. This work also infuses the dialogue about model syllabi with peripheral vision to reveal applications beyond the classroom walls. Intended for instructional development centers, higher education libraries, instructors, policy-makers, and department chairs, this book shows how model syllabi provide tools to widen and deepen the process whereby teaching is appraised in higher education. Benefits of Model Syllabi also shows how they can forge an unobtrusive feedback loop back to the classroom and strengthen curricular integration by establishing a fulcrum with which academic levels that often operate randomly (courses, programs, general studies) can be blended more meaningfully.
