Course Proposals

  • Discussion Needed
    • HST 201 & 203– Difference, Power & Discrimination
      • Motion to approve HST 201 and 203; seconded. Motion passes with 10 in favor, none against. One abstention.
    • ANTH 284 – Biological Science
      • Some tables were made to the table but they still have not yet explained how the outcomes link to the assessments. How assignments meet outcomes are also not clear.
      • They have good responses in CIM that could be moved to the syllabus.
      • An outline for the seven labs was added to the syllabus. It offers a short explanation of the lab.
        • Motion to send it back to align the syllabus with the CIM information; seconded. Motion passes with 10 in favor, none against. No abstentions
    • ANTH 383 – Contemporary Global Issues (CGI)
      • Justification for why this is course is not Science, Technology & Society (STS) was that they feel like it compliments their other STS courses by being in CGI.
        • They have no other argument for why this course should be in CGI.
      • Defer this until the next meeting to try and get more of an explanation from College of Liberal Arts leadership or the listed instructor on why this course is an appropriate fit for CGI.
    • PS 4/555 – Contemporary Global Issues
      • They have made requested changes and explained that discussion boards are used to assess discussions in on-campus courses.
      • Motion to approve; seconded. Motion passes with 11 in favor, none against. One abstention.
    • WSE 210 – Physical Science
      • There are several contrasts between what is in CIM and what is on the syllabus.
        • CIM responses are well done and labs fit the category. Assignments all seem to meet the outcomes and are well explained.
          • None of these things are present on the syllabus.
      • Ecampus and Hybrid syllabi are missing.
      • Syllabus is missing verbatim statement.
      • On-campus syllabus in the system is from 2019.
        • Reportedly there should be a revised syllabus that should have been attached.
          • Motion to send back to get syllabi for all modalities and to address feedback; seconded. Motion passes with 10 in favor, none against. One abstention.
