Course Outline Workshops
The new course outline template incorporates all of the elements of the program outcomes renewal process: outcomes, teaching strategies and assessments.
If your program has not yet engaged in the program outcome process, you can still attend the workshops below and began making changes to your courses.
To support ALL instructors to transition to the new course outline template the Teaching and Learning Institute has invited Glenn Galy, PhD and Doug Mauger, PhD of the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program to deliver the following workshops:
June 13 9:00-4:00 Room: SEN 101, Castlegar - Using the New Course Outline Template
June 14 9:00-4:00 Room: 16, Silver King Campus - Assessing Projects and Demonstrations
June 15 9:00-4:00 Room: 308, Tenth Street Campus - Using the New Course Outline Template
June 16 9:00-4:00 Room: SEN 101, Castlegar - Assessing Higher Order Skills and Thinking
June 16 4:30-7:30 Castlegar - BBQ
Register for the workshops online.
One on One Course Outline Support Sessions
Sessions are available all week in classrooms adjacent to the workshops.
In addition to the workshops instructors can book one on one, one hour sessions with staff volunteers who have experience with the new course outline template. There are no restrictions on the number of sessions booked in the week to support your course outline development.
Sign up for one on one sessions and view the available time slots on the Moodle Development site.*
*If you have never been to the Moodle Development site, you will need to create an account to get on to the booking site.
Each day mentors can be booked for one on one sessions to work on an instructor's course outline(s).
Updating Course Outlines is the Final Step in Curriculum Renewal
Normally, course learning outcomes have required the approval of Education Council.
However, until August 2017, EdCo has approved a variance that allows instructors to make changes to the course outcomes and assessments sections of the new course outline template in collaboration with their School Chair --- that is, without going through the normal approval process.
EdCo has agreed to this variance in order to facilitate a smooth and easy transition to the new course outline template.
After August 2017, the normal Curriculum Committee, Admissions and Standards and Education Council approval processes will be in place.
