Summary of 12/1/17 C&T Meeting

C&T met on Friday, December 1st at 2:10 in the Lipo Room, SFCC.

Our only agenda item, other than minute approval, was to discuss our report to Faculty Council on the report from the Core Review Ad Hoc Committee.  We developed a report that spoke to the process of the Ad Hoc Committee, High Impact Practices in the proposed curriculum, and concerns and recommendations that we had.  This meeting was spent discussing the report section by section and making changes and additions where needed.

The report was forwarded to Faculty Council.

I would like to thank the members of C&T for their hard work and collegial demeanor throughout the process of working on and writing this report.

C&T will meet for the final time this semester on Friday, December 15 at 2:10 in the Lipo Room, SFCC.

Thank you,

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
