Technological processes employed in engineering and engineering technology for teachers and students in teacher education programs.
ENCP 705 has traditionally been taken by in-service teachers during summer semesters, concurrent with their participating in a residential professional development institute. The institute prepares teachers to implement middle and high-school Engineering and Biomedical Sciences curricula through Project Lead the Way.
The College of Engineering and Computing has identified a need to provide this opportunity for undergraduate pre-service teachers. This proposal creates the course ENCP 605 as a mechanism to do so. After ENCP 605 is created in both the Undergraduate Bulletin and the Graduate Bulletin, then ENCP 705 can be deleted from the Graduate Bulletin.
It is anticipated that some sections of ENCP 605 will be offered through solely traditional instruction, and others with content provided through distance delivery methods.

Subject: RE: Engineering and Technology Courses
Donn, I am copying Dr. Nate Carnes, the program coordinator for our Middle Level Education, major so he is aware of the new Gateway to Technology Foundation course that you are developing. I believe such a course as potential for our Middle Level majors who intend to specialize in math or science.
We will continue to advise our math and science Master of Teaching students of the option to take ENCP 602 to fulfill degree requirements. Because the MT program requires student teaching in the Spring semester, I am doubtful that we will have students from that program available to enroll in Spring courses. Summer and Fall are the best options for MT students. I am copy Dr. Christine Lotter, our MT science advisor, and Dr. Jan Yow, MT math, so they are aware too of the upcoming Gateway to
Technology course. Also, Dr. Daniella Cook, our MT social studies advisor, has a technology requirement in her program so I am including her as well in case the new Gateway course serves a need in her program.

Subject: RE: USC PLTW Pre-Service Institution request
Thanks for the update. We remain interested in including PLTW courses as part of our MT and MAT programs in high school mathe and science certification programs as well as part of our
undergrad programs in Middle Level Education. Keeping the courses at the 700level well prevent our Middle Level program from making them degree requirements and will make them options only for those qualifying for Senior Privilege. Given that the actual instructors (Master Teachers) don’t have
doctorates, it does not seem these courses should really be offered at the 700level. I recommend the course be renumbered at the 600level so they can be offered for graduate OR undergraduate credit and staffed by faculty who may not have a doctorate. The process of changing a course number requires a Course Change Proposal (form at http://www.sc.edu/provost/forms/CourseChangeProposalCCP.pdf )
that usually begins in the department offering the course them proceeds to the College’s curriculum committee and ends with approval by the USC Graduate Council. I believe Jed Lyons as your Associate Dean for Academic Affairs can help with the process of changing the course numbers. Please keep us informed of the progress on the Fall 2014 offering. We will admit new MT and MAT teacher candidates in math and science in February 2014, advise them between March and June, so having the info in the Spring 2014 semester will help ensure we can advise students into the available courses.

ENCP 605 - INDEV Committee Comments
August 26, 2016
Monday, August 30, 2016
To: Jed Lyons
School of Engineering and Computing
Reference: ENCP 605 on – line course Palmetto College
Jed, congratulations ENCP 605 was conditionally approved at our InDEV Committee meeting on Friday, August 26, 2016. However, a few edits must be made before full approval can be provided.
Below are the comments on ENCP 605 from the INDEV Committee. If you have any questions, just let me know.
The course has been returned to you in Academic Programs Proposal System (APPS). Since this is an existing course and you are just adding distributed learning (DL), it only needs to go to Faculty Senate for approval after INDEV. Therefore, the syllabus must be edited and placed back in APPS and electronically approved by your (1) Department chair, (2) Steve Adams, and (3) your college representative. It is a good idea to email your department chair, Steve Adams and your college representative when you submit your edited proposal so that they are aware that the proposal is coming to them once again for approval. Once your college representative approves it electronically, it will be back in the INDEV queue so I can approve and forward it to Faculty Senate.
It would be best if you could get this all done by early September so that it may move forward through the process. Again, if you have questions, just ask.
Don Jordan, Chair InDEV 2016 – 2017
Please make the following changes and then complete the process to have your course approved again at each level described in the above email.
