gmneugeb (Wed, 06 May 2015 14:31:47 GMT): Rollback: HESM 304 Practicum-Dance- APPROVED PENDING unanimously.Discussion: Tom Koch moved; Kathleen Rieder seconded. A member pointed out that it mentioned that the course has a possible fee associated with it, liability insurance. Catherine Freeman noted that she had emailed the person in charge of overseeing the course, but was waiting to hear back about the insurance. Chair Auerbach suggested that a contact email or phone number and a range of cost should perhaps be provided. This would give students more guidance and is almost mandatory. A member noted that under the Student Evaluation Methods on the CIM form, it notes that a student will need to submit a 1 page report each week and a minimum of 3 journal reports are required; she didn’t understand this. Catherine Freeman explained that of the required reports, 3 reports would be evaluated for a grade. A member asked if 2 contact hours were sufficient for a practicum. It was determined that the contact hours need to be changed to 3 to meet the requirements for a practicum. A member noted that internships and practicum courses have the same contact hours. A member asked if there would be a Dance minor. Catherine Freeman confirmed that there would be, but it is still in production. Li Marcus asked if the department wants more specific requirement than ‘one HESD course’. As it shows now with ‘departmental permission’, this is just informational. A member asked if the course is considered a capstone, would that mean there are other courses required to precede it. Another member noted that in the CIM form under grading, it does not specify that there is a 50/50 grading on two things. Nothing about this in the syllabus indicates this. This information needs to be provided in the syllabus. Without any additional discussion the action APPROVED PENDING unanimously: update of contact hour information, more detail on the grading in the syllabus, remove references to the Minor in the documentation; more information regarding the liability insurance/fee costs.
