Course Revision #1

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

 

IS 1051. Introduction to College Learning Skills. (4 cr; counts toward the 60-cr general ed requirements; prereq participation in Gateway Program; offered summer only; S-N only)

Essential skills for success in higher education. Introduction to computing technology, writing, and math skills. Thought processes and standards of academic dialogue.   Academic and social skills needed for transition from high school to college.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

 

We think "Thought processes and standards of academic dialogue" is too abstract and general.  Any class can be said to have some components of thought processes and academic dialogue.  Gateway is designed as a

transitional program, helping students with cultural and academic transition from high school to college.  We think the new sentence describe the course better.

 

Course Revision #2

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

 

IS 1061 - Learning to Learn (SS)
(2.0 cr; Prereq-#; S-N only, fall, spring, every year)
Basic learning and thinking skills: procedures for acquiring knowledge and conducting academic inquiry; formulating and evaluating ideas, arguments and abstract principles. Introduction to elements of the learning process. Assessment of individual approaches and development of individual strategies for learning. This course begins the 5th week of the semester.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

By starting the class in the fifth week, we hope to give students who might need help a chance to realize that they need services.  Faculty will also have a chance to identify students and encourage them to take the course.

 

Course Revision #3

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

 

IS 3100. Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Science. (1-4 cr; offered when feasible)

Studies of topics, applying expertise from various social science disciplines, e.g., women in the social sciences.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

IS x993, Directed Study would serve the same purpose.  Past enrollment history shows students rarely  register for this course .

IS 3893 - Prior Learning Directed Study
(1.0 - 4.0 cr [max 999.0 cr]; Prereq approved directed study form, [#]; repeatable; fall, spring, every year)
Individualized learning project combining prior learning with faculty-directed new learning, awarding academic credit for both. (When content is discipline-related, discipline designation will appear on transcript and credit may count toward appropriate general education requirement category.)

 

Rationale (see instructions):
This phrase has been added to all Directed Studies in ECAS and PeopleSoft to replace the #. This eliminates any confusion and covers all levels of consent required. The # has been removed because it is instructor consent only and all directed studies require approval by both the Instructor and Division Chair or Dean depending on the home of the Directed Study.

Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

IS 3896 - Prior Learning Internship
(1-16 cr; repeatable; Prereq approved internship form, [#]; S-N only)
An educational experience in a work environment providing field application for the student's theoretical classroom learning experiences. The prior learning internship, such as in social service or business settings,

occurred prior to the student's matriculation. The prior learning is documented and combined with faculty-directed new learning, with credit awarded for both.

 

Rationale (see instructions):

This phrase has been added to all Internships in ECAS and PeopleSoft to replace the #. This eliminates any confusion and covers all levels of consent required. The # has been removed because it is instructor consent only and all internships require approval by both the Instructor and Division Chair or Dean depending on the home of the Internship.
