kkharris (Tue, 15 Sep 2015 17:00:16 GMT): Notes from University College CCC on September 14, 2015: Approved Pending – Revisions & Consultations Members suggested clearly defining disciplines, and how the course will address them. Members noted the topic outline in CIM should match the topic outline from the syllabus. Members suggested consulting various departments across campus such as Computer Science, Film Studies (HASS), and Animation (Design). Action has been sent to instructor for revisions.
