3. Review - WIC Committee

Approved by Vicki Burton Director / Writing Intensive Prgrm, May 30, 2019 11:41am


Vicki Burton (WIC Committee) May 30, 2019 11:41am
This course appears to be identical to GEOG 323, though materials do not indicate that these courses are cross-listed. The classes met in the same room at the same time. I also wonder about accepting D- grades for prerequisites, but that is not directly in my review responsibility. I recommend approval.

4. Review - BCC Committee

Approved by Robert Paasch Professor / Sch of Mech/Ind/Mfg Engr, June 12, 2019 2:41pm


Robert Paasch (BCC Committee) June 12, 2019 2:41pm
In the BC Alignment matrix, the second column should explain to the students how the course addresses the BC SLO, i.e. topics covered in the class that address the outcome. "Demonstrated" is pretty meaningless as it is mostly just copy/paste from assessment.
