Colleen Cressman (MIT) draws our attention to the Open Syllabus Project. The project is a work in progress aimed at creating “the first large-scale online database of university course syllabi as a platform for the development of new research, teaching, and administrative tools.” It has a collection of over a million syllabi culled from the internet and other sources, and a tool “Open Syllabus Explorer,” that allows users to search through the data to find assigned texts, texts typically assigned together, and the locations in which texts are assigned, among other information.
You can donate your own syllabus here. Perhaps it will end up as one of the site’s “syllabi of the month”. That honor is currently going to “Social Theory Through Complaining” by Kieran Healy (Duke).
