  • Job Market Workshop

Constructing a Sample Syllabus for the Academic Job Market


Dr. Meg Gregory

  • 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
  • via Zoom

Event Description

For teaching-focused positions, it is common to be asked for a sample syllabus. In this workshop for graduate students and postdocs approaching the academic job market, we will consider key aspects of sample syllabi to include, as well as how to align sample syllabi with the needs of different kinds of positions. Utilizing the principles of backwards design, we will also discuss where to start when trying to come up with a topics-based course. Note that this is not intended to cover the full course design process, but is instead specifically for those who must develop a sample syllabus for their job market materials.

Workshops in this series are only open to postdocs and graduate students in their third year and beyond. If you need the workshop sooner than that, for example, because you are in a terminal 3-year program, please email Dr. Gregory to register.

For questions about this workshop, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory, meggregory@wustl.edu.
