Course Materials

Syllabus Templates (Attachments sidebar)
The COE has several syllabus templates that are very helpful.  Your contact information, objectives, schedule (including assignments and assessments), and grading policies need to be clearly stated.  See the examples for other information that should be included on syllabi.

Course Readers
The Curriculum Research and Development Group has a printing office that can prepare course readers for your classes.


The library has instructions for getting an account and circulation policies. The library also has a page devoted to EDUCATION.  This is a useful place to direct your students.  Social Sciences Librarian David Brier will provide a valuable orientation to UHM’s library resources for educators for your students.  This is also helpful for new faculty finding out what’s available.  Please note that there are several libraries, including Sinclair (across the street from the COE) that’s most useful for electronic resources and media and Hamilton (across campus on East/West Road) that is considered the “graduate library” and has hard copies of journals and books.

Print and Electronic Reserves  The Wong AV Center in Sinclair Library will scan your hard copy documents to PDF format and host online for student access, or keep hard copies on reserve.  Sinclair Library can assist in making streaming video available to your distance education courses.
