  1. Other Items:
    1. IAI Retreat
      1. The IAI Retreat planned by ICCB, IBHE, and IAI staff for GECC and IAI Majors co-chairs in conjunction with the administrative panels for IAI (IAI Steering Panel and IAI Advisory Committee) occurred on Friday, February 17th, at Illinois State University’s Bone Student Center. 
      2. During the meeting, the attendees discussed the course submission and review processes as well as other important IAI related items. 
      3. Some parts of the process should be reviewed and streamlined to simplify submission for our participating institutions and the review/approval process for the panel members.
      4. One exercise during the day included modifying a recent statement from J.C. Penney’s to reflect where we all want IAI to be:

 

 

 

A Breath of Fresh Air

 

To our students and institutions:

 

This year, we turn 15.  We’re fine with growing older.  We’re not fine with growing stale.  So, to celebrate, we’re going to throw open the windows and let in some fresh air.

 

          We’re rethinking and reimagining, and if we find that we’ve picked

          up any bad habits over the years, we’re going to leave them far

          behind.

 

We’re simply going to treat students, institutions and their representatives as we’d like to be treated ourselves, fair and square.

 

To help students transfer, we won’t make institutions jump through hoops to go through the submission process by having their courses receive a fair review.  We won’t burden the transfer process with endless requests for more information.  We’ll have clear rationales and consistent standards. We will publish clear and objective criteria for review and let institutions know up front what we want and why.  And it won’t stop there.

 

          We’ll keep improving communication with all panels, committees and participating institutions, dreaming up new ways to make you love IAI again.  We’ll strive to make the process simpler and more effective for the benefit of students’ education.

 

We do this because we are the best transfer mechanism in Illinois.

 

We want to be your favorite transfer system. We want to be the solution, not the problem.  We want Illinois to be the national leader in articulation.

 

  1. IAI Items:
    1. Legislation movement is potentially coming.  SB0059 is now gone, but there is a new similar bill being discussed.
    2. Krista asked the panel to look at course criteria and checklist.  Please have proposed changes back to the sub-committee by Friday, March 30.  Then the sub-committee will “meet” with Krista.  Krista will take proposed changed to the Steering Panel meeting May 4.
    3. The panel discussed a revision suggestion for F2 907D made by Laurie Cubit at McHenry County College.  The suggestion was to expand the description to include other performing arts besides visual art.  The panel discussed the suggested change.  By Krista's recollection, no immediate action was taken to make this change to the identifier.

      Additional Note from Krista:  In researching this change, because the F2 portion of the identifier is referencing visual arts, to accommodate a interdisciplinary focus for this course, it would be appropriate to use the F9 identifier to allow flexibility for a variety of arts and performing arts.  As such the F2 907D identifier was not yet changed and a new identifier of F9 907D would need to be added using the basic description of F2 907D and revising the wording.  The panel is being asked to review the new description, F9 907D and make final changes and approve if appropriate.  Email was sent to panel on 06/07/2012.  Krista will ask for a formal approval if the panel wishes to proceed as described.  Further discussion needs to occur to determine if the F2 907D descriptor should remain and depending on the panels decision what should happen to the courses within that descriptor.  Do they move to the descriptor?  This would entail notifying institutions in question so they can update their catalog and other database maintenance in ending these courses in the F2 descriptor and adding them to the F9 descriptor.  The simpler solution is to disregard the fact that the F2 in the descriptor specifically identifies a Visual Art course only.  Panel is being asked to advise and recommend an appropriate course of action.

      Proposed new course F9 907D - Performing Art and Gender
      Examination of a selected performing art that express the experience and construction of gender identity. May emphasize a single art form, such as music, dance, theater, etc.
  2. Items from the group:
    1. None
  1. Next meeting will be held Friday, October 26, 2012 at ISU Alumni Center, Room 119l..
