Preparing your courses

Objectives and content

The academic advisor sets the course objectives in line with the programme the course belongs to. As an instructor, you propose content and a teaching format, which can then be reworked jointly to ensure the programme objectives, other courses, any peculiarities, student profiles, etc. are taken into account.

Instructors can take advantage of teaching support and the Library’s resources.

Course syllabus

You need to complete the course syllabus template and send it to your programme secretary at least one month before student registration begins. This presentation will be published on the Internet and visible to the public. It’s designed to give students an idea of the course content and format before they have to choose their courses during course registration.

The syllabus will also be included in the “grand syllabus” which lists all courses and instructors for the academic year.

Course outline

Instructors put together their course plan before the semester starts. The plan specifies the topic and any exercises (the n fait, il s’agit d’exercices réalisés par les étudinats et il est utiletitles of presentations, for example), required readings and assignments for each session. This description should make clear to students how the course progresses and the perspective it takes and help them organize their work. Instructors make the course plan available to their student group at the start of the semester using online tools.

Practical organisation

You are asked to submit your timetable choices two months before course registration.
At the same time, indicate any special needs you have for the course in terms of accessibility, equipment, etc.
