Standardization and academic freedom are often painted as opposing forces in higher education, and syllabi can take a central role in this perceived struggle. Accreditors want to see consistency in things like descriptions and course outcomes. Faculty need the ability to shape their courses based on their experience and expertise. But what if you can have both? Join Ryan Faulkner to learn about the College of Eastern Idaho’s journey towards more consistent syllabi with Concourse. You’ll hear how centralizing core components leaves more time for faculty to focus on shaping their parts of the syllabus - a win for both standardization AND freedom.

Parkland College adopted Concourse Syllabus with a number of goals in mind: standardization, consistency, ease of access, and improving persistence and promotion, among others. In addition to those benefits, what they found was that Concourse turned a time-consuming manual process into a smooth, efficient workflow that almost runs itself. Join Amy Frasca of Parkland College to learn how they leverage Concourse’s integration options and tiered template structure to save time and effort for everyone involved in syllabus management.

Concourse Syllabus is designed with every institution in mind, but some of its benefits are magnified for technical and community colleges. Large adjunct populations, higher faculty course loads, and smaller teams managing software are not unique to community colleges, but may be more commonly found there, and Concourse has features that address them all. Join Rebecca Roth of Greenville Technical College in Greenville, SC for a discussion of these benefits and the impact Concourse has had at GTC.

Lake-Sumter State College (LSSC) used to manually handle syllabus documentation and accessibility compliance through a small team, which resulted in a time consuming process that still brought forth handfuls of inconsistencies. During and post Concourse implementation, LSSC discovered that the syllabus management system saved hours of manual labor, provided a sense of reliability as syllabi became consistent, and ensured documents would be accessible for all students.

In an effort to ensure compliance and quality standards, we have crammed so much stuff into the syllabus that has become boring and difficult for our students to navigate. During this session, we will look at ways syllabus templates can be used to support compliance efforts, encourage academic freedom, and foster student success.

Even with a universal template and strong campus-wide adoption, Laredo College still struggled with the process of managing syllabi and ensuring completion and accuracy. The requirements of Texas House Bill 2504 added the need for public access to syllabi and increased the need for accuracy. Join them to hear how a new system helped them create a streamlined process that reduces the burden on faculty and administrators and ensures syllabi are consistent and consistently accessible.

See you there!
