A brief description of the open access journal hosting services:

The college has a Program Learning Outcome Repository (PLOR), where program learning outcomes for all Durham College programs are stored. Faculty and staff are able to access and view the program learning outcomes for all programs at the college. Where program standards exist, there are two sets of program learning outcomes, a Ministry version and a local Durham College version. The Ministry set details the Ministry approved program standard. The DC set reflects the modification and/or addition of program learning outcomes (if any) to a Program Standard, which have been validated by CVS. If PLOs need to be updated, the Program Coordinator can discuss this with the Executive Dean/Associate Dean and commence a Major Change process supported by the CTL.
