Transcription

1 In-Service Exercise Cluster 1 English Cluster continually assesses and revises student learning outcomes. Cluster has made significant efforts to ensure consistency of curriculum and textbook use. Differences in advising across campuses Lack of full-time faculty Differences across campuses with regard to student success centers and quality of tutoring Lack of communication between full-time and part-time faculty Recommendations: More full-time faculty Lower class size and faculty load Speech 1. Speech faculty are highly motivated to align their curriculum with USF s speech curriculum. A meeting held on Friday, January 23rd, between HCC speech faculty and USF speech faculty was highly productive and helped to strengthen the relationship between our faculty. 2. Learning outcomes are appropriate in the speech courses. 3. Courses align with other institutions, and speech faculty are interested in developing new courses that fulfill the speech communication and oral communication requirements at other institutions. 4. The budget supports the discipline s current operation and potential for growth, and numbers of faculty in the discipline are considered to be sufficient. 5. Internal communication is considered to be satisfactory.

2 1. Relevant audiovisual equipment is needed for presentation skills development. 2. The SouthShore campus teaches in portable classrooms which inadequate for those classes. Recommendations: 1. Provide relevant audiovisual equipment (specify?) for presentation skills development. 2. Provide permanent housing for SouthShore speech classes. Foreign Languages Cluster 2 Technology has been incorporated into the discipline, a hybrid and online course are offered. There is consistency across campuses with regard to textbooks and materials (except DM and McDill) Lack of a college-wide coordinator There exists a need for a dedicated computer lab Recommendations: Need a computer lab dedicated to just Foreign Languages. There needs to be better coordination across campuses. Religion Course student learning outcomes have been reviewed within the past five years and are relevant. Faculty are making learning opportunities available outside the classroom and in bringing speakers to the classroom. The addition of courses at Brandon has increased the enrollment numbers from 680 in 2012 to 749 in This number is also increased in summer offerings and in the development of hybrid and online sections of the course beginning in fall Full time faculty teaching the course participate in HCC committees including Cluster 2, Student Success and General Education. Full time faculty have ties with USF s Religious Studies program and communicates regularly with the department for advice on transferability of courses. Religion courses are now available in hybrid and distance learning formats.

3 Weaknesses and Recommendations: Weakness: Internal communication between full-time faculty and adjuncts needs work. Recommendation: More effort and ease should be created in communication between full-time faculty and adjuncts along with communication between campuses. Weakness: Adjunct faculty and full time faculty have not been encouraged to meet to discuss learning outcomes or classroom pedagogy. Recommendation: A review of outcomes in 2014 would be appropriate. In addition, one or two meetings per semester should help foster a stronger learning community among instructors and students Weakness: The numbers of faculty, administrators, and staff are insufficient to support the discipline s current operation and potential for growth Recommendation: Need a full time faculty member since there is no full time faculty line currently in Religion subject areas. Specifically, Brandon campus is the only campus with a full time faculty credentialed in the subject but the line filled through a Humanities line Philosophy Student learning outcomes were revised in 2013 and are relevant and consistent. Technological incorporation is currently appropriate and resources are available to maintain this status. Enrollment and demand seem adequate in philosophy. Students are able to acquire the same level of knowledge in non-traditional and traditional formats. Advising information is accurate and faculty provide students with information as needed. Weaknesses and Recommendations: Weakness: Students have not reported any problem transferring coursework in this discipline, however, there currently appears to be a discrepancy between USF and HCC in the course prefix and number for Introduction to Philosophy; however, this may change once the new Gen Ed requirements are instituted (HCC is currently consistent with state mandate). Recommendation: Continue to monitor with USF as they may have corrected this. Weakness: Philosophy at HCC would benefit from having more full time faculty in order to meet student demand with non-adjunct instructors. Currently, Brandon has no non-adjunct philosophy faculty, Dale Mabry has one, South Shore has one, and Plant City shares one with Humanities (and probably other disciplines). Recommendation: Philosophy at HCC would benefit from having more full time faculty in order to meet student demand with non-adjunct instructors Humanities Learning outcomes are relevant from the previous extensive revision in Updated ARH 1000 outcomes. Students are able to acquire the same levels of knowledge in all types of instructional formats.

4 Members have not heard of any problems with transfer of HUM sections to university. All students who wish to major in humanities can as these courses are transferable to the major at most Florida universities. Internal communication among cluster members is satisfactory. Developed HUM 1020 Faculty support professional development, including sponsoring the CCHA conference. Weaknesses and Recommendations: Weakness: counseling information to students is not accurate and this frequently results in students enrolled into sections who do not know what humanities sections entail. Recommendation: Members recommend, and are willing to create, a more informative document be given to advisors that they can share with students as the student chooses their courses. Weakness: members felt there is a large disparity between the different types of non-traditional formats which leave room for ambiguity without data on the specific type being discussed. Recommendation: Members recommend that data be collected, possibly in IDS sections, on what humanities courses the student took and in what format. Weakness: Technology resources should function consistently on all campus, one failure sited was that Wi-Fi connection, that faculty may need to incorporate technology into the classroom, does not function adequately, and sometimes not at all, in all classrooms. Recommendation: Weakness: there should be proper facilities for all sections but some are taught in portables. If demand for HUM sections has created growth shouldn t this warrant the providing of permanent facilities? It was also noted that the cleanliness of some rooms at Dale Mabry were less than sufficient where janitorial service seems to end at the hallways at least in terms of deep cleaning. Recommendation: Weakness: Members felt that there is not adequate funding for professional development. Recommendation: Members would like to see more funds available for travel to professional conferences, both in the U.S. and abroad, and with the possibility of more than two such activities a year (some FSPD committees limit awards to two occasions a year). Weakness: HUM 1020 Introduction to Humanities is not promoted by HCC advisors. Recommendation: Educate advisors regarding this new core humanities course; put HUM 1020 in promotional materials including the advising guide and datatel. Weakness: Additional courses from non-state mandated list are not promoted as options for students. Recommendation: Have advisors suggest one course from the state list and one from the HCC optional list. Theater Program is growing and offers unique opportunities for students including workshops and numerous performance opportunities. Learning outcomes are appropriate and current.

5 Our courses are in line with other institutions so students do not have problems transferring. Weaknesses and Recommendations: Weakness: Curriculum is limited, only giving first and second year acting students an introduction to the field. Recommendations: Restructure program to include more course work and additional graduation opportunities such as Certificate Program or an A.A. degree. Weakness: The program has minimal promotional/recruitment materials/events/activities. Recommendations: recruitment can be enhanced in three ways: one would be workshops for potential students. Faculty members at both Ybor and Brandon campuses would need to be compensated to lead these workshops; two would be a new/potential student night that could be arranged to invite students to see our theatre productions and a Q&A about HCC could be held afterward as well as a talk back with the student actors. Again, an administrative assistant at both Ybor and Brandon Campuses would be needed to organize both of these programs; a t third thought is aggressive publicity--getting the word out into the surrounding communities via advertising in area newspapers, billboards, online, etc. Weakness: With additional responsibilities and only one full-time faculty per department it is hard to operate and limits growth. Recommendation: Hire one administrative assistant on the Ybor Campus and one on the Brandon Campus to accommodate all of the performing arts departments including theatre, music, dance and visual arts. The theatre department has additional responsibilities added to the role of instructor. In addition to that, we are operating with only one full-time faculty member to run each department. The full length main stage productions need additional support and funding in the areas of technical design and marketing. It has been thought that one administrative assistant on the Ybor Campus and one on the Brandon Campus could accommodate all of the performing arts departments including theatre, music, dance and visual arts. Weakness: Ybor Campus has no budget for additional personnel for Student Productions such as lighting, set, sound, and program designers. Production budgets for two full length productions are terribly lacking--by about 50%. In comparison with surrounding programs, our overall productions values are minimal. No Brandon Campus has no budget for additional personnel, such as technical director; stage hands; lighting, set, sound, and program designers; house manager; and box office personnel. The budgets for two full length productions are terribly lacking--amounting to only a few hundred dollars. Brandon Campus is totally reliant upon ticket sales and the generosity of the Student Government Association. Recommendation: Obtain arts grants, seek more funding from the college, create opportunities for fundraisers and financial donors to contribute to our programs. Music NASM accreditation Faculty have created an online self-advising flowchart Our facilities are excellent.

6 Ability to recruit is insufficient If the program grows, there will be a need for another full-time faculty Need a full-time staff assistant with dedicated space to divide duties between theatre and other arts programs. Student attendance and commitment is often lacking. Recommendations: Hire full-time staff. Cluster4 Biological Sciences (including A&P, Biology, and Microbiology) 1) The faculty in the Biological Sciences ensures the consistent quality of their courses across all campuses through their high degree of collaboration. 2) General Education Biology courses enjoy strong recruitment and enrollment among both AA and AS students and across the campuses. Biology and allied courses are required foundational courses in many AA and AS degrees, but there is a high degree of variation in what courses are required for AS programs and transfer tracks for BA/BS degrees at four year colleges and universities. Additionally, students need to be mindful of the sequencing of these courses and their prerequisites in order to graduate in a timely manner. It is therefore imperative that students receive the best information available when they are scheduling their classes. 1) Student advising in these areas is in need of improvement and it is recommended that funding be made available to compensate faculty who volunteer to be trained and act as discipline/program specific student advisors. 2) Proper and informed advising is needed to clarify student confusion over new course designations and transfer requirements. A specific example is the confusion resulting from IDS 1152C changing to EVR 1001C as a result of state requirements. Significant decreases in enrollment for this once popular course have been traced to students not being informed of this change. Lab courses aid in student visualization, comprehension, and problem-solving relating to the fundamental principles taught in biology lectures. It is therefore vital that labs on all campuses are properly supported. With this in mind, the biology faculty has identified the need for the following: 3) A greater level of lab support staff (to handle the large number of course offerings and high enrollment) at the Brandon, Plant City, and SouthShore campuses. 4) More lab equipment at the Plant City and SouthShore campuses. 5) More funds for improved/up to date instrumentation across all campuses.

7 Chemistry 1) The Chemistry faculty ensures consistent quality and cohesion of the curriculum across the campuses through on-going dialogue. 2) Evidence shows that students who transfer to a 4-year institution after taking chemistry courses at HCC do as well or better than native university chemistry students. Note: Opportunities for faculty to faculty interactions between HCC and chemistry faculty at receiving 4-year institutions will help ensure that we continue to provide a high-quality foundational education for our students and they are well prepared and supported throughout their transfer experience. 1) The Plant City Campus does not have a full-time chemistry faculty member. Inconsistent coverage of the curriculum by adjunct faculty at this campus has been reported by other HCC chemistry faculty. It is highly recommended that a full-time chemistry faculty position be established at the Plant City campus. Lab courses aid in student visualization, comprehension, and problem-solving relating to the fundamental principles taught in chemistry lectures. It is therefore vital that labs on all campuses are properly equipped. With this in mind, the chemistry faculty has identified the need for: 2) additional lab equipment funding 3) improved soundproofing between classrooms on the Brandon campus. Physics 1) HCC ensures a strong foundation for future success by requiring PHY 1025 and PHY 1025L for students requiring higher level physics classes (PHY 2053/L and PHY 2054/L or PHY 2048/L and PHY 2048L) for their majors. 2) All campuses employ computer assisted labs. Use of this technology in the lab assists in data acquisition and processing, and aids students visualization and comprehension of background physical principles. Lab courses aid in student visualization, comprehension, and problem-solving relating to the fundamental principles taught in the physics lectures. It is therefore vital that labs on all campuses are properly equipped. With this in mind, the physics faculty has identified the need to purchase the following item: 1) bench top oscilloscopes 2) ballistic pendulums Physical Science (Gen. Ed.)

8 1) The General Education Physical Science faculty leverages their diversity of academic backgrounds to provide students with a large choice of academic offerings and experiences within the physical sciences. 2) The faculty continues to work on the development of new courses (for example, Oceanography) that will enhance the students learning experience while still being transferrable to 4-year institutions. 3) A high degree of flexibility in scheduling and course delivery methods is provided to accommodate the needs of our students. Many courses are offered fully online and as hybrid, in addition to traditional face-to-face format. Lab courses aid in student visualization, comprehension, and problem-solving relating to the fundamental principles taught in the physical science lectures. It is therefore vital that labs on all campuses are properly equipped. With this in mind, the physical science faculty has identified the need following issues: 1) Laboratory space is not sufficient on the Ybor City campus for current and projected enrollment. 2) Laboratory and lecture space is not sufficient on the Brandon campus for current and projected enrollment. 3) Additional hand-held/portable technology is needed (clickers, ipad carts, wi-fi access). Sociology Strengths Cluster 5 1. Sociological outcomes are consistent with the goals put forth by Hillsborough Community College and contribute to the overall education of students. 2. The majority of sociology classes are available in both traditional and online formats to accommodate different types of students and learners. Weaknesses 1. Class specific learning outcomes have not been updated in the previous five years. 2. Offering many different sections of a class can cause problems with class consistency. Recommendations 1. Review and revise course outcomes. 2. Utilize a standard set of exam questions that evaluate core components of the social sciences to ensure consistency of concept delivery. Psychology

9 Several courses are offered within the Psychology discipline. o PSY 2012 o PSY 2012H o DEP 1004 o DEP 1004H o CLP 1000 o CLP 2140 o PSY 2933 Full time faculty engage regularly and value Interdisciplinary/Collaborative work with various institutional levels of the HCC Community. This is demonstrated by membership and active participation in a variety of institutional level committees (Academic Affairs, General Education, General Education Assessment, Student Success and Retention, Dale Mabry Campus & Institutional Advisory Committees, etc.). Inadequate communication and collaboration between Adjunct Faculty members and Full Time Faculty members for online and lecture courses. Adjunct Faculty student evaluations are online with low return rates. This limits feedback for enhancing teaching practices Recommendations Increase communication and collaboration between Adjunct Faculty members and Full Time Faculty members for online and lecture courses. Discuss reinstatement of in-class student evaluations for adjunct faculty members. Other Responses: Below are the comments that I received from cluster members (only from Psychology) to your . There were no comments for the other cluster disciplines. *Regarding "weaknesses": #2 we are addressing now with the pilot program. The questions will be scrubbed in Spring 2015 and could then be available to all faculty in the cluster, whether full-time or adjunct. So this should be edited to show that we are currently in progress on that issue. *#4: Reliance on adjuncts. I am not sure that the recommendation resolves that issue. I am also concerned that given the strict number of hours students have to complete that these interdisciplinary courses may not meet requirements of transferring schools and therefore would be wasted hours by the student. Hiring more full time faculty may address the weakness (if adjuncts are seen as a weakness), but we cannot control that. So I am not sure that Weakness #4 should be included since it is not something that the Cluster can resolve.
