on the Discovery Program’s inquiry, breadth and capstone components
1. Motion presenter: Larry Prelli
2. Date of Faculty Senate discussion: 2/9/09 and 2/23/09
The senate’s Academic Affairs Committee has reviewed the information on the Discovery Program’s inquiry, disciplinary breadth and capstone components and recommends passage of those components. The committee’s criteria are pedagogical soundness, flexibility in application, a framework that enables dynamism as curricula develop, and feasibility. The present system has worked well but has not been updated for many years.
The Faculty Senate endorses the Discovery Program’s inquiry, disciplinary breadth, and capstone components.
