Intro by Jeff Cox
- Intro on teaching and reaching visioning
- Laying out of fall work
- Role of Committee and Report
Comment. The registrar’s office is very aware of problems around space. We need to have a clear sense of direction about what sort of spaces, particularly teaching and learning spaces, we need.
Comment. We need clarity on who “own” continuing education and its online operations.
Comment. We need to be more thoughtful about creating rooms that can be flipped. Some rooms that are thought of as providing such opportunities actually are not physically designed to do it.
Comment. We need a discussion of whether course materials should continue to be in hard copies or can all be placed online. Can we provide more free materials for students?
Comment. It is difficult to manage a number of student issues due to localized and different rules and policies in the different schools and colleges. We need more centralized, transparent rules.
Comment. The Registrar is working on a curriculum management system.
Comment. We need clarity on the differences between minors and certificates.
Comment. The university’s decision making process is unclear. To whom does one go to get various things done, approved.
