PAYING FOR COLLEGE
Procedure for Completing a Course Proposal:
Check the college catalog to insure that there is not another course that is similar in content in another discipline. If you are not sure, please reach out to your departmental curriculum committee first to reach out to the other department’s committee chair to discuss.
Also consider if your course is transferrable and consider your articulation agreements.
Our current course proposal form is being updated and modified. Please have your submission proof read before sending it to the committee.
If the revised or new course proposal will incur additional expenses to the college in terms of teaching hours or laboratory hours, please pre-submit the proposal to Dean Feibel before submitting your proposal to the curriculum chairperson. It is advisable to do this 3-4 weeks before presenting to the departmental curriculum committee.
course retains its internal code. For instance: XYZ101 is submitted for a change in the course description and a change in the teaching objectives. This course would remain as XYZ101 and therefore is a revision.
The number of students, teaching, lecture and laboratory hours all need to be clearly indicated. Any discrepancy should be explained in writing as a memorandum to the committee and submitted with your proposal and indicate this on the front page of the course proposal.
Instructional and Performance objectives should be numbered consecutively within their respective columns. Each instructional objective should have a related performance objective. Please begin each objective with a Capital letter and end with a period.
Under instructional objectives, it is best if you can use the active learning words that are listed.
If you are submitting a new 200 level course, please consider what pre requisite courses (100 level or other) courses a student might need to complete prior to registering for the 200 level course. The identified preparatory 100 level courses should be considered as pre or co-requisites.
If your pre/co requisites are included, please make sure that all equivalents are included.
If you are submitting a revised or a new course for a specific program or degree, you
must also submit a side-by-side comparison of the original program to compare with the proposed program with your course
. Cross out old courses and bold new courses.
If you are recommending a primary textbook that was published more than five years ago, be prepared to explain the justification for use of this textbook.
