Review the Syllabus
First, ask if you can review the syllabus. If this can happen before a consultation, that is preferred. Are there objectives or goals listed in the syllabus? If so, note them. If not, you may want to stress the importance of having those in the syllabus (cf. Required Elements of the Course Syllabus).
Questions to Ask Faculty
- What should students be able to do upon completing this course?
- What key takeaways and/or big ideas should students be walking away with?
- How are the existing course materials helping students meet the goals and/or develop the big ideas you want them to?
