2. Chair’s Report

  1. The Chair welcomed back Annie Bruster
  2. The Chair indicated that the Course Form modifications need to be made. The section on objectives was defined more clearly in terms of behavioral objectives. The Chair asked the Committee to look at this modification and see if there were any other recommendations that would be made for this form. This form is not yet "on line".

  3. Nancy distributed a copy of Bylaws 145
  4. A meeting was to be set up with Dr. Pitts, the Administrative Chair of the Academic Senate and the Chair of COI and Educational Policy. The Committee agreed that they did not think the committees should be combined. Also, the Chair indicated that the responsibilities for the Instructional Improvement Grants was not in the bylaws for COI. Thus, this would be added to clarify the role of the Committee on this matter of Instructional Improvement Grants.

  4. Objectives for the Epidemiology courses were not stated in behavioral terms. Chis Ireland was contacted by the Chair to complete this process.Also, the Chair discussed the issue of :fees for this masters degree in epidemiology. Other students could register for the courses, but they would have to pay a fee. The Chair was to clarify this with the Registrar’s Office
  5. One of the nursing courses needed to clarify whether the instructor of record was a paid faculty member as required to be the course instructor of record. Noreen was to follow up with this and check on 294E regarding the evaluation
