Some good sources of curriculum overview samples are the websites run by GlobalAcademics.com, EntreEd.com, the Colorado Department of Education and Oak Meadow. There is a guide on the Teaching and Learning Services page of McGill University's website that gives information on how to write a course outline.
McGill University's Teaching and Learning Services page offers both a downloadable guide to course outlines and also has many online resources to assist educators. McGill requires certain general information in course outlines as well as policy statements, information on course content, an overview of the instructional method and information on course materials, assignments and evaluations.
McGill's general information requirements for its course outlines include the number and title of the class, the number of credits the class offers, and when and where the class meets. Course outlines must also include the prerequisite courses that must be completed or certain skills that students must possess before taking a certain course. The outline must also include information on how to access the instructor, such as the instructor's office hours for students, the location of the instructor's office and a phone number that students can call to set up an office appointment. In some circumstances it also requires the contact information for teaching assistants.
