Course Outline Template

The Course Outline is an official document that ensures students receive accurate and up-to-date information regarding course content, course requirements, and course expectations.

The Course Outline Template includes standard information such as a Land Acknowledgment, an Academic Integrity statement, a Recognition of Prior Learning statement and a Mental Health and Wellbeing section with resource links. 

College Policy A5 – Course Outlines states that a Course Outline will be prepared for every course offered at Red River College Polytechnic. It will conform to the standardized template adopted by the Senior Academic Committee.

All Course Outlines must be approved by the department Chair or Program Manager. Once approved, changes can be made only to the following sections prior to each delivery of the course without the need for re-approval: Instructor Information; Instructional Schedule; Important Dates; Acknowledgments; Additional Information/Frequently Asked Questions.

When you are ready to update your course outline, please read the instruction sheet, go to the Course Outline Repository, and download the Course Outline Template. This ensures you are using the most current template to ensure information and links provided for students are up to date and accurate.
