Forums on revised student learning outcomes

Two forums will be held on revised Gen Ed student learning outcomes. Dr. Mark Hens provides details in this memo:

To: Members of the UNCG faculty community
From: Mark Hens, Chair, General Education Council
Re: Faculty forums for GHP, GRD, GSB, and GL/GN

This semester, groups of faculty from across campus worked in ad hoc committees to revise the existing learning goals of the GHP, GRD, GSB course categories and the GL and GN course markers as part of the ongoing general education course recertification effort. The General Education Council will host two open forums next week to give faculty the opportunity to provide feedback for the revised student learning outcomes. Departments offering courses that currently carry a GHP, GRD, GSB or GL/GN designation will be invited next semester to submit their courses for recertification using the revised student learning outcomes. Input from the broader faculty community is vital to this process, particularly from those who teach courses that carry one or more of these general education category designations and markers.

The schedule of the open forum meetings is:

Monday, March 26, from 10 a.m. – noon in McIver 140
Tuesday, March 27, from 2 – 4 p.m. in McIver 140

All faculty members are invited to attend the open forums, and faculty who teach courses with GHP, GRD, GSB, or GL/GN designations are especially encouraged to attend one of the sessions. The sessions have been scheduled for two hours so that faculty members who have conflicts may attend at least part of a session so that their questions may be answered and their comments may be heard. Attendance for the entire two hours is welcome, but not necessary.
