GEAC CommentOct. 14, 2008, We have been informed that the Department of Philosophy will address our concerns and provide a new proposal for review in the curriculum system. Therefore, we will wait to review the revised version. GEAC April 9, 2007 meeting notes AS-07-061: Philosophy - Intro. To Ethics It seems that the rationale for this proposal is forward-looking, but there are some technical details that are lacking. 1. Although Dr. Kenzig may have web-based teaching experience, what about the other faculty? Is this proposal applicable to all sections of Intro. To Ethics, and how will the faculty be trained? 2. What are the enrollment limits? Similar to the in-person sections? Specify. 3. For in-person sections, how much class time is discussion? Specify “occasional virtual classroom discussions” in this context. 4. Please address learning outcomes and their measures (Gen. Ed. #2) if possible. 5. Having to take exams on-campus in-person means that this class is not truly web-based. 6. The syllabus looks like a standard in-person course syllabus. Needs to be written for web based course. Add discussion topics and schedule to syllabus. 7. There should be a screening of students before they enroll to maximize their chances for success (some cannot learn in a web-based environment). Add Permission of Instructor and a screening protocol. 8. If course change does attract “students not currently enrolled” at UA, this is inconsistent with “No additional resources”.
