Update on core curriculum
Jamie Mohler, interim associate dean for academic affairs and diversity, recently provided an update to faculty and staff about the college's core curriculum.
TECH 120, Technology and the Individual
The TECH 120 course continues this spring with two sections offered. Four sections were offered during the fall. Pat Connolly and Dawn Laux will work over the summer on the distance version of the class so that it can be offered to the Statewide Technology locations in Fall 2012.
TECH 320, Technology and the Organization
TECH 330, Technology and the Global Society
Dan Lybrook will teach TECH 320 in Fall 2012 as a prototype with 60-80 students. Mike Nolan will teach a prototype TECH 330 course in Spring 2013. Both courses will be offered in Fall 2013.
The College of Technology core will likely dovetail into the university core and meet several of the embedded outcomes outlined in the university core. If you would like to offer input on the University core, contact one of the College of Technology senators and Kathy Newton, who serves on the University Core Curriculum Committee.
The Educational Policy Committee outlined four important areas that affect the core: governance, funding, faculty assignments, and credit (individual and department) for delivering core courses. The CoT Educational Policy Committee is discussing a governance structure for the TECH core, as well as honors and other TECH undergraduate courses.
