R. Wismer suggested that the following wording be added to the Catalog/and or schedule listing:
"A student may count a block of six Applied Musicianship courses (a total of 3.0 credits) as one General Education course from the Music Department. A student may count no more than two such blocks of six courses for General Education credit. "
Distance Learning Approval Process. The Senate approved the UCPRC Committee's Distance Learning Approval Process Proposal following agreement on three amendments as follows:
"If the department
approves of the DL proposal, the course can be presented
by that DL method, regardless of the instructor involved."
"Faculty are presently learning how to implement the necessary methods for distance learning. "
This removed an inconsistency that had occurred because correspondence courses were included under Distance Learning. R. Wismer said that the committee would rather keep the refèrence to correspondence than to make Distance Learning be defined as (solely) technology-based. (See revised proposal attached)
Discussion of General Objectives III was postponed to the next meeting of the Senate. This item has been added to the Agenda for the Senate Meeting on May 4.
