1/23/2020 – ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND TEACHING COURSES IN A SHORTENED TIMEFRAME

At the 3/22/19 Curriculum Committee meeting, discussion occured as to the integrity of a course and student learning in 3.0 or more unit course being taught in a shortened timeframe.  Below are documents that were used in the discussion–> 2006 State Academic Senate Resolution and 2010 State Academic Statement, the Peralta Course and Approval Handbook which also documents our District Academic Senate’s Resolution regarding Academic Integrity, and minutes from our 3/22/19 committee meeting.

From the committees discussion, there was consensus that we follow the recommendation of the State Academic Senate and create a seperate approval process for curriculum proposals of 3.0+ unit courses that are requested to be offered in a shortened timeframe:

“Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that when a course of three or more semester or equivalent quarter units is to be offered in a time frame of fewer than six weeks, the local curriculum committee, as part of the curriculum approval process, engage the discipline faculty in a separate review of the course for the following: academic integrity and rigor, the method for meeting Carnegie units, the ability for students to complete and for faculty to evaluate assignments, including those done outside of class, and the appropriateness of the method of delivery, to determine whether the course should be offered in a specific shortened time frame.”

4/22/19 – WHEN COURSES CAN BE OFFERED AS DISTANCE EDUCATION

The Curriculum Committee reviewed campus and district documents in an attempt to clarify when existing courses  being updated  to add Distance Education as an additional delivery method may be offered. The course may be offered online (or hybrid) AFTER the course update for DE has gone through the approval of the local Curriculum Committee, brought to CIPD as informational, and then approved at the Board of Trustee’s meeting. It is only after the Board of Trustee approval that a new section of the course, offered as DE, may be added to a planning schedule.
