Faculty Announcements

Dear faculty,

Just a reminder that fall and January term Shopping Days will take place on Tuesday, September 2 and Wednesday, September 3. Classes begin on Thursday, September 4 (for T/TH classes) and Friday, September 6 (for M/W) classes. To assist students to make informed decisions regarding course selections, it’s important that you work with your faculty assistant to do two things:

1) post your syllabus to the Course Listing as of Friday, August 1; and 
2) classify your course using our new taxonomy (academic area; policy domains; issues/topics; and methods).

Faculty assistants have received training on how to support these two activities and have online documentation available to them on the Faculty Assistant website.

Please keep in mind that it’s very helpful if your syllabus provides a thorough description of your course. A syllabus template is available

If you wish to peruse the 1500+ teaching cases in the HKS Case Program Library, you can do so 

Finally, the SLATE team remains ready to assist you with all aspects of course development and teaching. Please contact
Carolyn_Wood@hks.harvard.edu to request assistance from SLATE. 

Thanks for your attention to these matters.
