GEAC CommentGEAC has concerns with the wide variability in the syllabi for these courses proposed for the Gen. Ed. curriculum. Those developed by Prof. Matney for Assyrians and Sumerians are robust, but the other courses targeted to the areas of expertise of current part-time instructors are lacking. In addition, we do not support the development of new courses based only on part-time instructors in general. There is no evidence that these courses contribute to the learning outcomes that the Gen. Ed. curriculum has (presently being re-defined through the Higher Learning Commission Assessment Academy project in ITL) and we question the wisdom of adding even more courses to the Gen. Ed. curriculum that appear to be of the Area Studies variety. In summary, GEAC supports adding the two courses proposed by Prof. Matney to the Gen. Ed. curriculum, but not the others included in this proposal. 5/5/09 - GEAC needs to try and resolve its differences with the department through a modified proposal, otherwise CRC will move to the formal hearing process.
