Chair’s Report: (I)

·         Noncredit updates

o        The PE department will not be piloting non-credit courses. Non-credit courses are free to all students, no repeatability restrictions. We would receive apportionment. Discussion on non-credit courses. We need to investigate our options. Wording on Credit/Non-Credit, Not for Credit, No-Credit is confusing for students. Not for Credit, the fee could help the department. Courses for parents of Deaf Children would fit under Family Education.

·         CurricUNET Users Conference – San DiegoCityCollege

o        Updates; best practices; fun and interesting info

§         At the CurricUNET Users Conference, Chris discussed adding the 6-year course review. Talked about pilot program review using CurricUNET. He mentioned that it was apparent that as new schools come on board using CurricUNET new and interesting ways or approaches of using the software are generated. It will be important to realize that CurricUNET can be updated as much as we like to suit our needs at Ohlone.
