Course Materials Sprint

Nassau Community College

June 3-5, 2018

Overview: The overall goal of this project is to make a group of complete courses available to other faculty. This course sprint is part of that effort, and our intention is to emphasize activities that are more difficult to achieve when we are working individually.


  1. Review, critique, and improve syllabi for each course with particular focus on learning outcomes, course topics, and approach to learning
  2. Review, critique and improve selected materials from each course (lectures, learning activities, assessments, etc)
  3. Review and improve structure for packaging and disseminating each course
  4. Review and improve approaches to learning evaluation
  5. Discuss potential for publication of results across institutions


  1. Provide basic information about your course so that we can see how the set of courses relate to each other. You can do this by completing the template here
  2. Make syllabus and materials available - We would like to have shared access to the current version of everyone’s course. We’ll figure out the best platform for that once we have the basic information about all the courses requested above.
  3. Be prepared to provide a 25-30 minute guided tour of your course
  4. Have to have at least a draft syllabus
