Against Syllabi

Terry Caesar, Inside Higher Ed, Feb 03, 2005
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is an interesting twist on the reusability parasox. "The more syllabus-heavy a course, I would argue, the more context-dependent." The detailed course syllabus, argues the author, has evolved as a legal defense against an increasingly litigous student body. The author leaves us questioning whether the syllabus will ever succeed at its task; I leave wondering why a course should ever become a matter of litigation in the first place. Via Pedablogue.
