Creating and Rethinking Syllabi to Open Learning

Welcome to the Community Page for Creating and Rethinking Syllabi. We are committed to developing syllabi that honor diversity, promote equity and inclusion, and spur decolonizing practices of thought.

Here you will find associated readings and example syllabi, together with direct student perspectives. These represent a range of perspectives and practical wisdom from current and former students.

We believe there is no one right way to put together a syllabus that aims to honor diversity and support equity and inclusion. All are works in progress, and we encourage exploring various approaches.
