Course content varies and will be announced in the schedule of classes by title. May be repeated as content varies by title.
The Spanish Program is proposing topics courses at the 400- and 500 level, and take this opportunity to modify some of the details for this existing course.
Why do you want to remove the indication that the course will be tuaght in Spanish? The syllabus clearly indicates this: "Spanish will be the language of instruction".
The Course Description and the Bulletin Description should not be the same. The Course Description should actually articulate what the content is.
The new Bulletin description sounds redundant and does not express any new information:
The learning outcomes are not learning outcomes. It is a list of what the students do in the course and that is not the same thing. The Learning Outcomes need to be the verifiable outcomes of the instructional paradigm. See the CTE website for more information on writing learning outcomes.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
The committee did notice one issue with the proposal. In the syllabus it is recommended to have a Diversity statement. If you contact the Center for Teaching Excellence, they have some draft language. Please make this change in the syllabus the next time the course is taught.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
