Proposal

Proposal ID: 101490
Type: Change Course
Submission Date: September 25, 2017 8:38am
Approval Date: October 25, 2017 3:46pm
Effective Term: Winter 2018
Justification:
This course is being redeveloped to have a more contemporary topic with a focus on design tools for climate change resilience. The previous version of the course had a more limited student enrollment due to the course structure and instructor work load, so the previous course is being streamlined and restructured, with all new content developed. This requires a change in the course title and description to reflect the changes in the course topic and structure.
