Items requested for first reading at 08 December 2005 curriculum committee meeting:
- Proposal to change the mathematics general education requirement to a 100 or higher level mathematics course rather than a specific course such as MS 100 or MS 101.
- HCOP recommendations. Recommend that in order to ensure the nutrition program learning outcome is met, better focus the program, and to reduce the number of credit hours to more manageable level for a two year program, the following be done:
- Drop the four credit science requirement that students take physics (not offered nor has it ever been offered) or zoology (not appropriate to the program learning outcomes)
- Add a requirement to take SC 112 Nutrition
- Drop the MS 101 Algebra and Trigonometry requirement from the major requirements. Leave in place the three credit math elective requirement under the major requirements, which would now include MS 101, MS 150, or MS 152.
The resulting program would be more tightly focused on health careers and be a more reasonably achievable 66 credits than the original 70 credits in two years.
- Proposed institutional student learning outcomes:
||Students will be able to...
||define, describe, demonstrate, and explain knowledge within a field of study.
||apply, use, perform, exhibit, and demonstrate skills required of a particular career or field of endeavor.
||plan, design, develop, seek, find, synthesize, and create solutions, strategies, documents, and products.
||exhibit the capacity for independent thought and critical thinking.
||communicate effectively through writing, speaking, performing, exhibiting, or other forms of expression.
||acquire, interpret, analyze, assess, and evaluate information.
