Michael Harte (CC Rep - Graduate School) February 7, 2018 9:42am
This interesting course needs a wider liaison. At the moment liaison is only with the Grad School. Wider liaison with the business school, bioscience programs and programs in Public Science and Human Sciences. This would be in keeping with the interdisciplinary intent of NRT programs.
One other element that should be further explained is that the class seems to be heavily focused on an approach that is also a proprietary commercial product/service provided by one of the co-instructors. This maybe fine, but needs to be disclosed to students taking the class.

Thanks Michael for your feedback and followup phone call. I have added liaisons from each College that has currently either expressed interest in the program or has participated (COS, CAS, COE, COP, PHHS, COEAS). I have also updated the syllabus to address the Conflict of Interest disclosure.

The originator has been emailed with a comment, as follows: "the Registrar would like to do away with "unenforced prerequisites" and (rather) use the term "recommended courses" to avoid confusion"

The system thinks I'm the Head of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering, but I'm not. I've hunted around trying to find some info on proposal that are incorrectly routed, but haven't found anything. Not sure what to do about it.

I am supportive of this second course in the series, and discussions with the Graduate School about the long-term sustainability of the series have commenced and will continue in the coming months.

Regarding this course, I would suggest two minor edits to the syllabus, and that the revised version be resubmitted for reviewers moving forward.

(1) Please tally of hours for in-class and out-of-class activities so that students (and reviewers) can see that total, and that it is aligned with the 120 that are expected for a 4-credit class.

(2) I noticed some other minor edits that need attention, and I believe are the result of previous edits you made (there is a reference at the bottom of page 4 to “2 hours” but I am unsure its connection to the other text). Please just give the final version a full read through and make updates as needed.
