Putting Your Class Goals in The Syllabus
I have advocated stating the class goals in detail in the syllabus. This helps students focus on the proper things and gives them purposes with the course. Having a purpose aids learning.
Rick Garnett has posted an excellent class syllabus for criminal law containing course aims and goals on the PrawfsBlawg. I also like the fact that he has listed the reasons criminal law is a required course for everyone.
We are required to include course goals in the syllabus (though because there is a long list of what is required to be included, I put much of it in a linked document to prevent clutter). My understanding was that this is an ABA recommendation or requirement; perhaps I am wrong about that. In any event, it certainly helps to have all of this information in writing and available to students.
