Equitizing Syllabi Case Study

How Lehman College and Every Learner Everywhere Collaborated to Transform Gateway Courses

Starting in 2021, a group of faculty at New York City’s Lehman College participating in an intensive professional development project radically rewrote their syllabi and, indirectly, transformed their course design and teaching practices to put students at the center of learning. These newly equitized syllabi and the faculty who developed them are now influencing courses beyond those originally at the center of this effort. This case study details how the Lehman College Office of Online Education collaborated with Every Learner Everywhere and its service partners to develop and deliver the support necessary for this transition.
