4. Course Approval Criteria and Submission Process - Reviewed materials 

Krista will update the criteria per the panel discussion and post online.

5. Other

  • GECC Evaluation list - panel has decided to use it.
  • Writing requirements within HFA courses were discussed. The panel decided that some clarification is needed and Anne, the panel co-chair, will begin work over the summer of reviewing the language in the criteria and determining if recommendations of writing from discipline to discipline can be made.
  • HFA Course descriptions need updating - Sean and Anne, the panel co-chairs will work together to review them to identify those that need work over the summer.
  • SSB History Course Identifier revision proposal was discussed.  Lily explained the process and what the intended results would be if the panel adopts these recommendations which is greater consistency within the descriptions within and between the panels that house history courses.  She also explained that the SSB panel is working at the process and this was the opportunity to introduce the information to the panel.  Krista will send the current list to the co-chairs (Sean and Anne) for review and recommendations back to Lily, who is also the co-chair on the SSB and has been working with David Thompson, who is History Faculty from Illinois Central College serving on the SSB panel.  Work will continue on this project.  The plan is also to pull the co-chairs of the History major panel into the discussion for their thoughts and recommendations.  A conference call to discuss this between the panels may be scheduled in the future as work continues.
  • The panel feels it is important that submitters/institutions provide foreign language syllabi in English for evaluation by all members of the panel.  Topical outlines specifically are difficult to determine if the topics required by the descriptor (H1900) are included in the course. Jeshua Franklin of Lincoln Trail will work on appropriate wording information institutions of this necessity.
  • HUM 170 from Triton - The course was reviewed multiple time.  The faculty requested help from the panel to align the course with the descriptor HF907D.  The panel reviewed the course's current syllabus and determined that it does fit the descriptor of HF907D as currently represented by the syllabus.  The panel approved the course at the meeting.  Because this was a discussion item, Krista will update the system to show the course as approved.
