Outcomes: 100% of departments (28) are engaged in course coordination; ~50% departments were previously conducting Gen Ed related activities as part of departmental accreditation requirements. Departments are at various stages of the course coordination cycle due to different approaches and priorities. Full- and part-time faculty implement and assess Gen Ed SLOs in various sections of the course(s) and are included and engaged in an ongoing course coordination process at the department level. The coordination process is now transparent, intentional and valued School Progress Meetings with Department CC Liaisons Gen Ed CC Working Group Fall 2015 & Spring 2016 Identified Challenges Discrepancies in transfer of knowledge between courses Discrepancies in transfer of knowledge from faculty to students Lack of standardization across all sections of the course Lack of faculty discussion about calibration in multiple sections Lack of adjunct faculty integration Lack of systematic approach to use feedback for course
improvement from students and faculty, especially adjuncts Next Steps: 2-year Course Coordination Cycle Fall 2016 Spring 2018 2016-2018 Course Coordination Liaison Charge: A two-year commitment to lead course-level improvement of student learning and the student experience. Course coordination liaisons (CCL) will work with course instructors, other members of their department/chairs, fellow liaisons, deans, members of the Gen Ed and Assessment Committees and others to evaluate course content, course materials and pedagogical practices, and implement, reassess, and share effective course coordination practices.
