Gary Beach (Academic Programs) September 26, 2014 1:57pm

Requirements Section:
The following changes were made to the Requirements Section of this proposal --

(1) FW 534: The FW 534 course was changed from:
FW 534
to
FW/OC 534.

(2) FW 574/OC 574: The FW 574/OC 574 course was changed from:
FW 574/OC 574
to
FW/OC 574.

(3) FW/BI 564: Effective Winter Term 2015, the crosslisted course will be what is proposed; i.e.,
FW/BI 564.
Currently (Fall Term 2014), the crosslist is FW/Z 564.

---------------

Question: Regarding FW 537 and FW 538, why is the FW 537 course located in the Human Dimensions Subject Area, while the FW 538 (Lab) course is located in the Fisheries Science and Ecology Subject Area. Shouldn't both courses be located in the Human Dimensions Subject Area?

Thanks,

--Gary

Subject: FW: A review group has sent your proposal back

Hi Gary,

Selina Heppell and Jim Peterson the instructor for the course have an answer to your question:

This is at request of the instructor. The lab course (538) is highly quantitative and gets into the modeling and technical aspects of the methods that are used in the lecture course. It should be listed in the Skills section of the curriculum. We have had a number of students without much experience in statistics and modeling really bog down in this course. The lecture (537), on the other hand, is more about application of the methods and models to real world problem-solving, and ways to incorporate human behavior and values into natural resource decision-making. Students who take 537 do not The courses are not co-requisites, and a number of students have taken 537 but not 538. Listing them separately seemed to be the best solution for our students, along with some pre-requisite suggestions for 538.

This is an expedited course proposal, so I cannot resubmit this, even though it has been sent back.

4. Review - Catalog Coordinator

Approved by Larry Bulling Academic Wage Appt - Hourly / Office of the Registrar, October 14, 2014 12:58pm

Proposal

Proposal ID: 91833
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: October 1, 2014 2:52pm
Approval Date: October 14, 2014 12:58pm
Effective Term: Winter 2015
Justification:
We would like to remove FW 620 Ecological Policy from the option of courses under the Fisheries Science and Ecology Subject Area because it is more appropriate under the Human Dimensions Core only. We also would like to add the newly created FW 534 Estuarine Ecology to the list of Fisheries Science and Ecology Subject Area. This course is an appropriate FS&E course and will provide more selection to the available Corvallis campus courses.
Comments:
This Expedited Change Undergraduate Certificate proposal seeks to update the Graduate Certificate requirements by adding a new course and removing another.

The following courses added cross listings
FROM: AREC/AEC 552 TO: AREC/AEC/MRM
FROM: FW 564 TO: FW/BI 564

CIP # 030301 has been added.

Contacts: Individuals have been added as contacts. Reason: Their academic program has been identified as being impacted by this expedited change course proposal.
