Cornell University

Course Policies Workshop (ETD’22)

This was a session at ETD’22.

Wise course policies require a balance between flexibility and predictability to benefit both students and instructors.

Policy Areas

A review of contributed syllabi identified the following six main topic areas for course policies:

  • Academic integrity and misconduct
  • Accommodations
  • Attendance and participation
  • Inclusion
  • Late work
  • Regrades

Syllabus Writing

Advice on writing syllabi, including some example Cornell syllabi, can be found here.
