Curriculum Development
Curriculum Development Guide
Curriculum is one of the major responsibilities of the faculty. It entails a knowledge of the discipline, an understanding of pedagogical practices and strategies and an organizational structure aligned with campus, system and statewide policies. At campus level, the Academic Programs Office handles the administrative functions, the Office of the Registrar handles student functions and the Faculty Senate oversees curriculum development. The Teaching Resource Center is trying to assemble all of these aspects in a coherent resource site for faculty, as well as provide the Curriculum Guide for Q2S conversion and transformation.
