This course meets the Aesthetic and Interpretive Understanding learning outcome of the Carolina Core. Offering the course online will provide greater access to students by providing them with an asynchronous means of meeting this learning outcome, thus providing both greater flexibility and more options than would be available if the course was not offered online.
RELG 270 is an approved Carolina Core AIU course. This proposal is for a Distributed Education Delivery (DED) option for the existing course.

Jack, congratulations RELG 270 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 RELG 270 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.

RELG 270 - INDEV Committee Comments
August 26, 2016
1. One small recommendation: The number of exams, etc. should be included in the grade distribution.
2. I'm assuming no pre-requisite is needed for this course, but it would be good to state that in the syllabus.
3. Put the % sign in the grading section by 90-100%, etc.
4. A statement about rubrics should be added.
5. I agree that information saying rubrics for the project and the peer review will be provided.
Sincerely / Don Jordan, Chair InDEV 2016-2017
RELG 270 is ready to go to Faulty Senate Oct 5, 2016.
