Master Syllabus Addendum to Course Syllabus

Instructors are encouraged to include additional Washburn University information with their course syllabus. There are two Master Syllabus documents: one for undergraduate courses and one for graduate courses. These documents can be found under the Teaching heading on the VPAA’s Policies and Forms page: http://www.washburn.edu/faculty-staff/faculty-resources/policies-forms/

The updated Master Syllabus is also available for Desire2Learn instructors to link to from within their courses. The information from both the graduate and undergraduate Mastery Syllabi has been consolidated into one document. Linking to this Master Syllabus provides the benefit that any changes made to the original will appear the next time a user selects the link. Additionally, if contents are copied from one course to another course, the copied link will continue to point to the most up-to-date material.

The steps to link to the Master Syllabus from with a D2L course are:

  1. Go to the module where you place your course syllabus
  2. Click the New button
  3. Select New Link from the menu
  4. Type University Syllabus Additions in the Title box
  5. DeleteĀ http://from the URL box
  6. Copy and paste the following text into the URL box: https://d2l.washburn.edu/shared/Master-Syllabus/master-syllabus.html
