This review addresses concerns about the scheduling of classes during the week and how well that scheduling aligns with teaching objectives. The plan is to come up with something better and here is the process:
- Totally understand the current system (enrollment data, physical space data, rules about 4:30-7:30pm, rules about evening prelims/teaching, compliance, impediments). This will require full consultation with the Office of the University Registrar , the Office of Space Planning, and all the scheduling experts who sit in the academic units across campus.
- Educate the campus about the constraints and the issues. Figure out what everybody wants by using the Web and the assemblies.
- The Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, the associate deans group, and the Educational Policy Committee participate in the process all along the way.
- The Educational Policy Committee forwards its recommendations to the Faculty Senate for consideration and a vote. The results are communicated to the Provost who ultimately determines what is enacted.
This Faculty Senate Presentation provides a quick overview. Some general sources of information include the Course and Time Roster ( Spring 2018, Fall 2018, Spring 2019), Courses of Study (2018-19 ), the Instructional Space Scheduling Policy, the Classroom Space Guidelines document, the, 2013 Instructional Space review, and a 2016 Classroom space assessment
