Course Outlines Training

Please note this training is available to LA&PS staff only.

Course outlines are only created for LA&PS undergraduate courses.

Course outlines are publicly accessible at the York Course Timetables Website and help students make important enrolment decisions.

Course outlines with transparent expectations and requirements, when made available to students before courses begin, will help with retention and overall student experience.

Instructors are to provide their program staff with AODA compliant Course Outline files, to be added to the course timetable website.
