Ø                  CurricUNET Updates

Discussed further the CurricUNET Users Group Conference. New report (CI) Course Impact Report. If we change a course, this report will show how this change will affect other courses and programs. We are also getting the 6-year review report. New feature – CurricUSEARCH. This feature ties all the colleges that use CurricUNET. So if a faculty member is creating a new course and wants ideas on what could be taught, they can search the database for like courses. This is nationwide.

Program Review:

Luc Desmedt – Physics – Tabled until Spring 2007

 

Chris Warden opened the floor to discuss ongoing program review and asked Kathy Sparling to highlight how the library is doing and reporting on their updates, their trials and tribulations. She spoke on how the Newark Library will be more of a virtual library. Chris Warden also asked Yvette Niccolls to discuss the Math, Science and Technology program review. They are noticing that a large program as Biology has more than one program under it, and therefore will present multiple reviews under a single discipline.

Issues:

·                     New subcommittee - Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment Committee – Chris Warden & Dr. Jim Wright

Dr. Wright - Curriculum Chair now needs help since the Curriculum Committee encompasses much more than just courses and programs. Student Learning and Assessment Program coordinator will have between 20% reassignment. The person would be from the faculty and would report to the Curriculum Committee but not necessarily on the Curriculum Committee. Chris Warden – most schools have a subcommittee on outcomes, most under the Curriculum Committee. Dr. Wright – We would like to explore using CurricUNET or some other software to do and house program review. The coordinator would be a consultant to the departments under program review. This will be going to faculty senate on December 6, 2006. More information to come in spring 2007.

 

·                     Accreditation, WASC and Standard II. – Dr. Jim Wright – Tabled until Spring 2007 because of Standard II and WASC Accreditation Retreat on December 15, 2006. That information to be presented at the first Curriculum Committee meeting in spring.

o              Starting work on the questions focused on curriculum

·                     Service Learning discussion – Chris Warden – Tabled until Spring 2007
