Approve minutes of November 18, 2005 meeting - Approved
New business – curriculum changes
Area: Human Development, Family Sciences and Rural Sociology – presented by Tim Killian
Course schedule change
Type of Change: Minor
Description of Change: Move HESC 4463, Administration and Evaluation of Child Development, from the Spring to the Fall semester
Justification: Reduce scheduling conflicts for students and faculty
Area: Apparel Studies – presented by Laurie Apple
Course pre-requisition change
Type of Change: Minor
Description of change: Replacing HESC 3013 with HESC 1013 for HESC 3033
Justification: Students must have had the Apparel Studies basic course HESC 1013 to be able to take any further Apparel Studies courses. These two courses can be taken at the same time, therefore reducing the semesters it takes to complete the merchandising classes from 3 semesters to 2 semesters.
Course pre-requisition change
Type of Change: Minor
Description of change: Add HESC 3013 for HESC 4023
Justification: Currently HESC 3033 is a prerequisite for HESC 4023. By removing HESC 3013 as a prerequisite for HESC 3033 it makes it necessary to add it to HESC 4023.
Course pre-requisition change
Type of Change: Minor
Description of change: Add HESC 3013 for HESC 4073. New pre-requisites will be HESC 3013, 3003, 3033 and consent of instructor.
Justification: The addition of HESC 3013 for HESC 4073 is due to the deletion of HESC 3013 as a prerequisite for HESC 3033. The addition of 3003 and consent of instructor assures the student has had the proper courses to be able to take an internship in either merchandising or design and that their paperwork is completed prior to conducting the internship.
NOTE: The pre-requisite changes voted on in the Sept. 9 meeting were approved by the registrar on Nov 9, 2005.
Area: Interior Design – presented by Jennifer Webb
Informational: Offering special topics
Type of Change: Minor
Description of Change: Approval of Special Topics courses relative to new curriculum.
Justification: With new elective hours in the ID program, faculty want to offer special topics courses as electives for ID students as well as those in allied disciplines. These courses are intended to address emerging issues within the discipline or to address specific interests expressed by students. Topics include but are not limited to: Advanced Lighting Design, Historic Preservation, House/Home, Advanced CADD, Sustainable Design, Special Topics in History, Culture and Design, Healthcare Design.
We (IDES) will have draft syllabi for the above mentioned topics. Approving these courses at this time will allow them to be scheduled more easily as the need/interest arises. We also hope that some of these courses might well serve as the foundation for graduate classes or evolve into a regularly offered course.
A motion was made and seconded to approve the above curriculum changes. The changes were approved unanimously.
3. Policies and Procedures – the committee will be updating the policies and procedure manual. Jennifer Webb suggested that a bullet point listing of "how to do" would be helpful for completing the forms.
4. Adjourn.
