Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) Event:
Dee Fink will be hosting a whole day workshop for faculty teaching general education courses on January 11th from 9 am to 4 pm in PSU 400 (lunch provided).
The workshop will help participants apply the principles of integrated course design for the purposes of creating significant learning experiences for students as outlined on the speaker’s website (https://www.deefinkandassociates.com/index.php/workshops/generalinformation/).
Sign-up by going to My Learning Connection under Profile tab on My Missouri State (search in My Learning Connection “General Education”).
Since CIS 101 was deleted April 2015 and CSC 101 is being deleted April 2016 from the MSU undergraduate catalog and we have not taught either of these courses in Fall 2015 or Spring 2016, we will be waiving the requirement for those students that did not have a course to fulfill the Computers for Learning requirement. All students that are currently on the Fall 1997-Summer 2014 General Education (old general education) that did not take the waiver exam or a Computers for Learning selected course will now see this waiver on their degree audit. This change was made effective March 3, 2016.
The following courses that are in the old general education (prior to Fall 2014) but are not the current general education will have reciprocity to count in specific areas of our current general education if taken before 2016. The list of these 7 courses and where they will count in our current general education if taken prior to 2016 is as follows:
MTH 285 & MTH 340 – Quantitative Literacy
KIN 310 – Written Comm. & Integrative &Applied Learning
CHM 160/161 – Physical Sciences
THE 210 – Arts
IDS 397 – Cultural Competence
Faculty Senate Approved on March 24, 2015 the General Education Assessment Plan including the review process and a tentative timeline for the periodic review. This can be found on the CGEIP website under General Education Course Review. At the bottom of the page is links to the review process (Annual and Periodic for courses), tentative timeline, and frequently asked questions.
