New Course Proposal Overview

Instructions for Submitting a New Course Proposal

All new course proposals must be submitted through the online Curriculum Management Program (CMP) . Instructions for accessing and using the program are available in a PDF document .

The following is the information required for new graduate courses. You may include additional information in the online submission that may aid the Curriculum Committee in reaching an informed decision. All proposals must be sent electronically to the CMP by the deadline shown on the Academic Calendars .

Course Credit
In general, 1 hour of credit is assigned for 1 hour of classroom experience and two hours of out-of-class work per week in a 15-week semester or for 2 hours of lab experience over the same period. An equivalent amount of work in an online course receives equivalent credit.
Catalog Description
A description of sufficient detail to convey the primary objectives of the course. The description should be general enough that, should course content change and evolve as new methods or interpretations of data become available, the description still applies.
Objectives
State the knowledge/skills students will have acquired upon successful completion of the course.

Definition of a learning objective: A learning objective is a precise statement that answers the question, “What should the learner have learnt or be able to do, relative to the subject content, upon completing this topic or unit?” J.E. Kemp, The Instructional Design Process .

Specifically, the statement of the objective should contain an action verb (to evaluate, to select, to design, to integrate, to test) followed by a reference to the subject content.

Possible levels of cognition are (from lowest to highest) knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. The action verb should reflect the level of cognition.

In addition to reference to subject content, optional items in the objective statement may define the expected level of achievement and conditions under which the performance will be evaluated (time limits, etc.).
Content
A detailed course outline sufficiently detailed to permit judgment of topics covered, their depth, and rigor of the course. It is understood that the course content may change from year to year depending on the state of the science. Include recommended textbooks.
Method of Evaluation
If examinations are used, include type and frequency of examination. Other methods of evaluation such as term papers, student presentation, or alternative methods of evaluation should be specified.
Placement in Curriculum
An overview of the curriculum to evaluate the fit of the course into the program’s curriculum and curricula of other programs to avoid duplication of course content.

Evaluate the need for the course and the target student groups. State whether the course is required or elective and anticipated frequency.
Faculty
Course director and all faculty involved in the course. A curriculum vitae of the instructors is not required.
Addenda
Additional material necessary to evaluate the proposal.

New course proposal review

The course director of the proposed course is required to attend the Curriculum Committee’s meeting at which the course will be evaluated to address queries and to expedite the review process.

Upon completion of the first offering, the new-course evaluation process must be completed and a report sent to the Curriculum Committee for review.
