In Spring 2013, the Core Curriculum Committee adopted its plan for the Core Curriculum Working Groups and continuous improvement. This plan makes the Working Groups primarily responsible for overseeing their learning goal, including campus-wide promotion and coherence, pedagogical development, assurance of learning and assessment, review of syllabi, and the evaluation of designation proposals. The overall purpose of this general oversight is to continuously improve the quality of student learning.
The previous spring, members of the Core Curriculum Committee, the Chair of the Core Curriculum Committee, and the Office of Institutional Research decided to begin assessment of the Core with the Social, Historical, and Cultural Understanding learning goal as our starting point. The final report for this assessment, produced Spring 2013, can be found here.
