Update C&T Meeting 9/15/17

Hello colleagues,

C&T met last Friday in the Lipo Room in SFCC.  Our agenda consisted mostly of discussion concerning C&T’s charge in reviewing the proposal that we expect to receive from the Core review committee sometime in mid October.   As a reminder, here is our charge:

  1.      Ensure that the process of the review has been fair, just, transparent and collaborative.
  2.      Consider the curriculum as a whole with particular attention to the high-impact practices that are incorporated and the general education best practices.
  3.      Identify any areas of concern that were not identified by the Ad Hoc Committee.

C&T will have one month to consider the proposal and forward its review and recommendation to Faculty Council.

A number of sub-committees were formed to begin some of the work of reviewing much of the data generated and compiled by the Core review committee.

We also discussed questions regarding Cart membership and grade distribution.

Our next meeting is Sept. 29 at 2:10 PM in SFCC Lipo Room.

My thanks to the committee for their continuing hard work.

Best,

Dave Reynolds

Curriculum and Teaching (C&T) Committee

Dave Reynolds, C&T Chair

This Committee is charged to suggest curricular policies and to assist in the implementation of established policies in such areas as approving and reviewing courses in the Core Curriculum, changing and supervising the Core Curriculum, maintaining the quality and coherence of the Core Curriculum, adding or deleting all academic programs (majors, minors, concentrations, certificates, etc.), developing and evaluating experimental teaching methods and experimental academic programs, aligning admissions policies and degree requirements, and serving as liaison to the library. While the C&T committee exercises broad delegated powers on routine matters, all major initiatives and policy recommendations of the committee should be referred to Faculty Council for its approval.

On a five-year rotation, the Chair of C&T shall require the CART coordinators to submit a written report which examines how its courses fit in with the overall mission of the college and the Core Curriculum.
