2 Major, Unchanged aspects of Current GE Policy (PS 00-00)
3 Categories from EO 595 Sections 5 & 7 of the policy A – Communication in the English Language and Critical Thinking – 9 unitsB – Natural Sciences and Mathematics(New title and change in units)C – Humanities and the Arts (change in units)D – Citizenship and Social and Behavioral Sciences and HistoryE – Self-Integration – 3 unitsDave, Are these really unchanged since you are indicating that some of them have changes in title and number of units? Maybe remove the units and keep only the titles. Or, remove entire slide???? The categories and their contents are unchanged; some of the titles and unit requirements have changed. I intend to explain this somewhat verbally.
4 Additional Requirements Required separately from GESection in Title 5 and EO 405United States History3 unitsConstitution and American IdealsBut, EO 338 (=595) allowed inclusion in 48 units since 1980Now considered part of Category D
5 At CSULB, GE consists of 3 sequential phases Section 3 of policyFoundation – all of “A” and Mathematics (B.2.)Explorations – rest of “B” and all of “C”, “D”, & “E”Global IssuesHuman Diversity in the U.S. (new title)CapstoneFinal three coursesDouble count within ExplorationsAdvanced SkillsService LearningInterdisciplinary (I)
7 Required Outcomes and Assessment Learning Outcomes are provided (Sec. 2)All courses mustaddress at least one learning outcomeAll departments mustprovide evidence of assessment oflearning outcomesfor course re-approval for GEThe entire program must be assessed by the GEGC (Section )Who will assess the entire program? GEGC
8 Policy Clarification/Organization Sections numbered using conventionSections moved and/or combined to clarify requirementsCombined all general requirements into one single sectionEliminated section on composition of GEGC;Will be in new committee charge
9 Reduction in Units Currently – 51, Proposed – 48, Why? Title 5 (EO 338/595) required 48 in 1980Since 1980 CSULB has required 51Would count only 3 of 6 units associated withUnited States History andConstitution and American IdealsSo, General Education required 51 unitsCO has requested that campuses use 48CSULB will count all 6 unitsThus, only 48 total
10 Reduced units in “B”, “C”, & “D” Currently11 in “B” (reduced by senate from 12)12 in “C”15 in “D”Total = 38Proposed9 in “B”, 9 in “C”, 12 in “D”6 “floater” units among the threeTotal = 36Why do we need to talk about major department here since we deal with it in the next slide? Ok
11 Counting units from major department toward GE Currentlycourses in major department may not be double counted as GE, EXCEPTfor certain special cases.Their number keeps growing, andresult is much confusion.Proposed (Section 4.3)allow up to 10 unitsin the major departmentto count as General EducationWhat section is this? Please quote. I did.
12 How many current patterns? pre-1981 – based on earlier requirements1981 – based on PS 81-11introduced Categories A-E9 UD units required, 6 of which are in “I” courses1985 – based on PS amended 1985required course in World Societies & Cultures in D1993 – based on PS 91-00HD required1999 – based on PS 98-00all 9 UD units must be in Capstone coursesGlobal Issues separated from D“C” or better required in Foundation coursesPraveen – I really want to add this slide. It gives important information as to when certain requirements came in and relates to the reduction of “grandparenting” shown later.
13 Returning students – New Requirements (Sec. 6.1.) those who left with no more than one remaining course may graduate under earlier patternreduced mainly for pre-1981 pattern in 00-00All returning studentsmust complete 9 upper division GE units6 of which must be capstone (same as 00-00)Consider a different color for the reduced bullets. Will help. How is this?
14 Transfer Students – New Requirements (Sec. 6.2) Currently all CCC transfer students with full GE certification must complete onlyCapstone - here (relatively easy) or elsewhere (relatively difficult)Currently all other transfer students must completeCapstone, Human Diversity in the U.S. and Global IssuesAs well as all remaining requirements in Categories A-EProposed – all transfers must completeCapstone, Human Diversity in the U. S., and Global Issueshere (relatively easy) or elsewhere (relatively difficult)Of 165 Interdisciplinary (I) courses53 (32%) are Global Issues (G)20 (12%) are Human Diversity in the U.S. (HD)CCC transfersMay have already completed HD and/or Gbut not Capstone (Must be completed at CSULB)Dave, this is confusing. We have to make it clearer Question is what can and can not be done at CSULB? That is the central question. Do my changes make sense? Yes, but do mine?
15 Changes to titles of categories EO 595long, descriptive statementsnot shorter titles for categoriesCSULB utilizes shorter titlesTitles stated 3 times in documentSections 3, 5, & 7sometimes different titles are usedCurrent titles may confuse naïve readersDave, I really think you need to reduce the slides on titles to no more than 3 slides that incorporate major changes. The senators will tune out. I know that was my reaction as soon as I saw so many slides on title changes. Main point to be made is that regardless of title, the requirement for a particular category follows the long descriptive statements made in EO Rethink all slides from 15 to 30. Really!!!! I disagree but I relented and reduced it down to the ones with significant changes. I will state that the others have either no change in title or relatively minor ones.
