  • Syllabus Lab

    The Syllabus Lab is a partnership project by Sacramento State's Center for Teaching and Learning and the College of Education. The purpose is to help Sacramento State faculty members improve their courses by providing a safe, confidential, and anonymous peer-reviews of syllabi. A journal-like online platform will accept syllabi, and ask at least two faculty members to serve as reviewers. One reviewer will be a discipline expert, and another - an expert on higher education pedagogy. We may also ask a student or another faculty for a third opinion. The reviewers will be asked to evaluate the content of the coherence of the course course design, learning activities and assessments, clarity of language, and other aspects of the course. Unlike a real journal, we will not publish the submissions.
