1 Both Sides NowDeveloping and Reviewing Both Sides Now: Developing and Reviewing CSU GE-Breadth Course Outlines CSU GE-Breadth Course Outlines CIAC Conference April 26, 2007 CSU GE-Breadth (GE-B) Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) Christine Hanson, CSU Chancellor’s Office Kathryn Barth, CSU Chico Jane Leaphart, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

2 Community College student options for completing GE requirements Complete local university requirements Complete CSU GE-Breadth certification requirements Complete IGETC certification requirements Honored at that campus only Honored at any CSU campus Honored at any CSU or UC* campus *accepted by most UC programs

3 Developing Outlines to Meet Review Criteria Become familiar with the GE expectations (EO 595) EO 595 decides GE-B review criteria Share Area criteria with faculty Click “General Education” Think like a reviewer!

4 Assisting Faculty Steve Pantell from Meritt College compares the development of a course outline to constructing a résumé. The reader won’t infer what you don’t list. Be specific; give examples. Use key words that readers will be looking for. Sell the course as you would sell yourself in a résumé. Try to read the document for what might be missing or unclear.

5 Corresponding GE-B and IGETC Areas CSU IGETC A Communication 1 B Science & Quantitative 5, 2 C Humanities, Lit, Art, Lang 3 D History and Social Sciences 4 E Lifelong Learning & Self Development None None Foreign Language 6A

6 Area A 1 Oral Communication 1C Presentations live, in front of peers and instructor Live, not online or taped Must specify “methods of instruction” Hybrids okay—performance must be live in front of live audience Area A 2 Written Communication 1 A Appropriate prerequisite: SAT scores, placement scores Instruction must be in English Need to identify the number of written words (final draft only) that students need to produce in and out of class.

7 Area A 3 Critical Thinking 1B CSU does not require a stated prerequisite or instruction in writing, but IGETC does. IGETC requires instruction in composition and critical thinking (including at least 6,000 words, not including revisions). Focus on inductive and deductive reasoning, identifying formal and informal fallacies of language and thought. Students learn how to evaluate information for validity, authenticity, and logical soundness. IGETC requires area 1A prerequisite to 1B courses

8 Area B 1 Physical Sciences 5A Science courses emphasize concepts, theories, methods of science disciplines Students should learn how scientists do science Certification requires stand-alone labs to have a related course as prerequisite or co-requisite. Stand-alone CSU labs are Area B3 Physical science lecture + lab are B1 and B3 Physical geography courses are usually Area B1

9 Area B 2 Biological Sciences 5B Science courses emphasize concepts, theories, methods of science disciplines Students should learn how scientists do science Certification requires stand-alone labs to have a related course as prerequisite or co-requisite. Laboratory manuals required Both lecture and laboratory topics/activities should be delineated Biological science lecture + lab are B2 and B3

10 Area B 3 Science Labs 5A or 5B Science courses emphasize concepts, theories, methods of science disciplines Students should learn how scientists do science Certification requires stand-alone labs to have a related course as prerequisite or co-requisite. Laboratory manuals required Both laboratory topics/activities should be delineated Physical science lecture + lab are B1 and B3 Physical geography courses are usually Area B1 Biological science lecture + lab are B2 and B3

11 Area B 4 Math/Quantitative Reasoning 2 Math courses must take skills beyond intermediate algebra Math courses must have stated intermediate algebra prerequisite IGETC does not accept trigonometry courses

12 Area C1 Arts 3A Art, dance, music, theater Students learn to appreciate, analyze “great works of the human imagination” Must have significant, integrated cultural component Does not include “skills” or “professions” courses that do not have a significant cultural component

13 Area C2 Humanities 3B Literature, philosophy, languages other than English Students learn to appreciate, analyze “great works of the human imagination” Must have significant, integrated cultural component Does not include “skills” or “professions” courses that do not have a significant cultural component IGETC includes history in the humanities when addressing “great works” of cultures (as in Western Civilization courses) IGETC requires Foreign Language courses beyond proficiency level Logic, mass media, mass communication, journalism courses not accepted

14 Area D History and Social Sciences 4 Social and behavioral sciences, political institutions, interdisciplinary social or behavioral science courses History primarily counted in Social Sciences for CSU and IGETC (may also qualify for humanities) See guide for history special cases Integrated, identified disciplinary foundations (theories, methods, perspectives) Textbooks should reflect disciplinary orientations and content Does not include courses building skills for professions

15 Area E Lifelong Understanding & Self-Development (no IGETC) Integrate physiological, psychological and sociological content Lifelong development, not college skills or survival courses PE courses: students have to move under supervision of instructor or coach, who give feedback and evaluation of performance Unit limitation on PE Activity courses For information on use of DD214 credit, contact Dr. Jim Blackburn

16 (no CSU equivalent) Languages Other than English IGETC 6A o Proficiency equal to two years of high school study o CSU or UC freshman LOTE entrance requirement fulfilled this area o May be satisfied by demonstration of equivalent proficiency prior to transfer. New proficiency exams! Contact Sheila Lau at On the Web

17 Tips Look at prerequisites for appropriate level, content Focus on description, content, and objectives (should match) Check textbooks for currency, relevancy (at least one published within last 5 years) Must be baccalaureate level content, rigor, assignments, texts No “variable topics” courses accepted Online science labs – not likely to be approved; ask for help If it’s good for IGETC, it’s good for CSU GE-B When in doubt, ask

18 Contact CSU Academic Program Planning for issues related to curriculum and curricular policy. Christine Hanson (562) On the Web:
