1 PROPOSAL TO REVISE GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM S HASS AND STEM REQUIREMENTS Revised SUMMARY This proposal calls for changes in the General Education program implemented in 2000 and amended in May In 2012 the Senate approved a change to the four General Education core courses (12 credits) which went into effect Fall The proposed changes affect the HASS (Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) components of General Education. The changes reflect the intent to reorient the General Education program toward, and provide the foundation for, the Michigan Tech University Student Learning Goals (hereafter referred to collectively as USLGs or individually as Goals). Degree programs build upon the General Education program in order for graduates to demonstrate proficiency in all eight goals. These changes also reflect an intent to align our program with the proposed Michigan Common Core for transfer credits.the changes to the General Education core approved in 2012 provided foundational learning in Goal 3 Global Literacy and Human Culture, Goal 4 Critical and Creative Thinking, Goal 5 Communication, and Goal 8 Values and Civic Engagement, four goals which are critical to student success in college and beyond. This proposal recommends that the new LG-HASS (Learning Goal HASS) component be intentionally aligned with these same four goals to enable students to achieve greater proficiency in each goal, and that courses be selected from four goal lists. This proposal further recommends that the new LG-STEM (Learning Goal STEM) component be aligned with Goal 2 Knowledge of the Physical and Natural World, reduced from 16 to 15 credits, and selected from Mathematics, Science and Supplemental STEM lists. In addition, this proposal recommends that (1) the LG-HASS component allow 3 credits to be taken from approved courses on the LG-HASS lists that are offered by non-hass departments and (2) the LG-STEM component allow up to 4 credits to be taken from a supplemental STEM list that includes courses from non-stem departments that engage students in the study of STEM topics. For both components, it is understood that students take courses taught primarily by faculty educatedin the HASS or STEM disciplines, respectively.student learning in all courses in the General Education program--core, LG-HASS, and LG-STEM (exclusive of STEM Supplemental courses)--would be assessed against the Michigan Tech rubrics for the goal(s) that each course intends to achieve. This revision reduces the total number of General Education Credits from 40 to 39, with the reduction of one credit in the STEM component of General Education. 1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM AND RATIONALE The General Education Council has spent several years designing and implementing a General Education program that shifts the emphasis from a set of distributed courses and contents to a set of outcome-based competencies identified as Michigan Tech s University Student Learning Goals. The eight goals established in 2011 are as follows: 1. Disciplinary Knowledge 2. Knowledge of the Physical and Natural World 1

2 3. Global Literacy and Knowledge of Human Culture 4. Critical and Creative Thinking 5. Communication 6. Information Literacy 7. Technology 8. Values & Civic Engagement This shift from courses to competencies in general education is already occurring at other institutions such as the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Regular assessment of these competencies supports both internal efforts to improve student learning and external demands for accountability. This emphasis on competencies and assessment is supported by the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), which has developed the LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes and VALUE rubrics that are used by over 2000 institutions, including Michigan Tech. The Lumina Foundation s Degree Qualifications Profile (DQP), which also emphasizes competencies, is used by colleges and universities in almost every state in the US. Michigan Tech is a member of the LEAP campus network, and public universities in Michigan are considering a proposal for Michigan to become a LEAP state. In 2012, the University Senate (Senate Proposal 15-12) approved changes to the General Education core that aligned the 12-credit core (UN1015, UN1025, HUFA-2000 and SBS-2000) with five USLGs: 3 Global Literacy and Knowledge of Human Culture, 4 Critical and Creative Thinking, 5 Communication, 6 Information Literacy and 8 Values and Civic Engagement. Table 1 shows which Goals are covered by each core course. We began to implement this change in Fall To support this change, in 2012 the Senate created a Communications Committee and a Global Learning Committee (Senate Proposal 22-12) to develop definitions and identify requirements for courses to meet Goals 3 Global Literacy and 5 Communications. These committees developed Michigan Tech rubrics based on the LEAP VALUE rubrics to assess these learning goals and identified resources to assist faculty in achieving these goals. The General Education Council also convened faculty experts to develop Michigan Tech rubrics based on the LEAP VALUE rubrics for the remaining Goals (4, 6 and 8) until additional goal committees could be formed. The rubrics for each Goal designate four levels of achievement: 1 Beginning, 2 Developing, 3 Proficient, and 4 Exemplary. The General Education Council recommended that General Education core courses help students to achieve at least a minimum of Level 2- Developing (see Table 2). In May and August 2013, workshops introduced the rubrics to instructors of General Education core course; instructors practiced using the rubrics to assess student work and discussed how the Goals could be achieved and assessed in specific courses. Instructors were requested to include the Goals in their syllabi and identify assignments that could demonstrate student learning and be used for goal assessment. The work thus far has prepared us to take the next step of General Education reform: revising the HASS and STEM components of General Education to help students achieve selected USLGs at a higher level, Level 3-Proficient. This is presented in Table 2. The General Education Council proposes that the HASS component of General Education move students toward Level 3- Proficient in Goals 3 Global Literacy, 4 Critical & Creative Thinking, 5 Communication, and 8 Values & Civic Engagement goals that are often difficult for many majors to address and be renamed Learning Goal (LG) HASS. It also proposes that the STEM component should enable 2

3 students to achieve Goal 2 Knowledge of the Physical and Natural World at Level 3-Proficient and be renamed Learning Goal (LG) STEM. The proposed changes to general education should enable students to become effective in applying these learning competencies in the major and achieve Level 3-Proficient by the time they graduate. Majors would be expected to provide opportunities to reinforce and practice those competencies introduced by the General Education program. In addition, Level 3-Proficient in Goal 6 Information Literacy and Goal 7 Technology would be addressed in the majors because the outcomes of these goals vary by discipline. Assessment of student learning in General Education courses will be conducted annually to provide feedback to faculty and the General Education Council for the purposes of improving courses, rubrics, and the General Education program as a whole. This assessment focuses on student achievement of the USLGs which are specified in the course using direct evidence of work produced by the students in that course; it does not assess the course as a whole, which is the prerogative of the department in which the course is delivered. This assessment of General Education is distinct from annual degree program assessment, which mandates assessment of USLGs in the major curricula on a specified schedule (for example, in , all degree programs will assess Goal 5 Communication). For more information on assessment, see The proposed changes were developed to align with proposed Michigan Common Core Requirements for students transferring from community colleges to 4-year colleges. See Table 3. Proposed General Education Program and Michigan Common Core Requirements. Transfer students who have completed the Michigan Common Core can transfer their credits to either the General Education program or major requirements using course equivalencies. 2. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED CHANGES LG-HASS. There are currently three HASS lists: HASS Distribution List, HASS Creative Endeavors List, and HASS Supplemental List. It is proposed that these lists be replaced by four new LG- HASS lists, one for each of the four USLGs that will be addressed by the LG-HASS component of General Education: 3 Global Literacy, 4 Critical and Creative Thinking, 5 Communication, and 8 Values & Civic Engagement. Students will select courses from these lists to complete all four Goals in 12 credits. To be approved for an LG-HASS list, a course must demonstrate how it will help students achieve the goal at Level 3-Proficient. A faculty member in any department can propose a course for the lists; however, students can only take 3 credits of coursework that does not have a HASS prefix (HU, FA, SS, ECON, PSY). Appendix 1 provides examples of how a student could meet the LG-HASS requirements. LG-HASS requirements would be as follows: 12 credits (this reflects no change in credits) Degree programs cannot designate specific LG-HASS courses. 3

4 For Courses: Each course on an LG-HASS list must demonstrate learning for at least one Goal (3, 4, 5 or 8) at Level 3-Proficient. Courses will be approved by the appropriate Goal Committees and then by the General Education Council. Each course on an LG-HASS list may include one or two Goals; a course can therefore be on one or two lists. Prerequisites for LG-HASS courses are limited to General Education core courses (UN1015, UN1025, HUFA-2000, SBS-2000) All LG-HASS courses are open to all students. All LG-HASS courses are subject to assessment by the appropriate Goal Committees. For Students: Students must cover all Goals (3, 4, 5 and 8) in 12 credits by selecting courses from the four LG-HASS lists. A student could meet at most two goals in one course. At most one 3-credit LG-HASS course with a non-hass prefix can be used to satisfy LG- HASS requirements. Courses can count toward either LG-HASS or LG-STEM requirements on a student degree audit, but not both. Students may substitute one additional 3-credit HUFA-2000 or SBS-2000 level General Education core course for 3 credits of LG-HASS (i.e., they cannot use the 2000 level core courses which count toward their core requirement). This will enable students interested in an LG-HASS course for which they do not have the prerequisite to complete the prerequisite and take the LG-HASS course. However, to meet all four Goals, one course will need to meet two goals in order to complete the LG-HASS requirement in 12 credits. LG-STEM. It is proposed that STEM credits be reduced from 16 to 15 credits and that LG-STEM courses be selected from three lists: Mathematics (4 credits), Science (2 courses including a lab), and Supplemental STEM (up to 4 credits). A faculty member in a non-stem department can propose a course for the Supplemental list; however, students can only take up to 4 credits from this list. Appendix 2 shows courses which are proposed for these lists. LG-STEM requirements would be as follows: 15 credits (a reduction of 1 credit). Degree programs can designate specific LG-STEM courses For Courses: All courses on the Mathematics or Science Lists must meet Goal 2 Knowledge of the Physical and Natural World. Courses on the Supplemental LG-STEM Course list must be engaged in the study of STEM topics and approved by the Goal 2 STEM Committee and General Education Council, and 4

5 must be graded (A-F) - students enrolled in the course must be engaged in the study of STEM topics as demonstrated or documented with graded student work (i.e., any combination of homework problems, exams, papers, reports, presentations) that composes a minimum of 70% of the student s grade in the course. This criterion precludes courses that use student attendance as the only, or a major (greater than 30%), component of course grade. All LG-STEM courses are open to all students. All LG-STEM courses on the Mathematics and Science lists are subject to assessment by the Goal 2 STEM Committee. Courses on the Supplemental STEM list are not assessed for Goal 2. For Students: Students must complete a minimum of 4 credits of Mathematics from the Mathematics List. Students must complete two science courses on the Science Course List; at least one of these must include or be taken with the accompanying laboratory. No more than 4 credits can be taken from the Supplemental LG-STEM Course List. Courses can count toward either LG-HASS or LG-STEM requirements on a student degree audit, but not both. In these proposals there is thus an opportunity for faculty to propose, and students to complete, up to 4 credits outside the traditional HASS or STEM designation to meet the LG-HASS and LG- STEM components. STEM (non-hass) faculty can propose LG-HASS courses that meet Goals 3, 4, 5 or 8. For example, a faculty member in Environmental Engineering may want to propose a course in sustainability that meets Goal 8. Students may take up to 3 credits of LG-HASS courses with non-hass prefixes. HASS (non-stem) faculty can propose LG-STEM courses for the Supplemental List. For example, a faculty member in Social Sciences may want to propose a course in the history of technology that engages students in a STEM topic. Students may take up to 4 credits of Supplemental LG-STEM. Appendix 3 provides a checklist of the General Education Requirements that includes the proposed changes. COURSE DESCRIPTIONS No new courses are proposed by the General Education Council. New courses proposed by departments for LG-HASS and LG-STEM requirements would go through the normal binder process. Both new and existing courses proposed to satisfy the LG-HASS and LG-STEM requirements would be reviewed and approved first by the appropriate University Goal Committee for the goal the course is designed to achieve. The Goal Committee would then submit a list of approved courses to the General Education Council for final approval. 5

6 For courses to be included on the LG-HASS lists, faculty would submit a syllabus for the proposed course, along with the rationale for inclusion, to the appropriate Goal Committee for review. The syllabus must clearly state the University Student Learning Goal as a course goal and identify assignments that would be used to assess the goal. Since LG-HASS courses are expected to enable students to achieve Level 3-Proficient, the rationale should include how the course intends to achieve that level of learning and how students will demonstrate such learning through student work that would be assessed by evaluators external to the course. For new courses to be included on the LG-STEM lists, faculty would submit a syllabus for the proposed course, along with the rationale for inclusion to the Goal 2 STEM Committee for review. The syllabus should clearly state Goal 2 as a course goal and identify assignments that would be used to assess the goal. For inclusion on the Mathematics or Sciences list, courses are considered foundational for Goal 2 and are expected to enable students to achieve Level 3- Proficient. The rationale for inclusion on either of these lists should include how the course intends to achieve that level of learning and how students will demonstrate such learning through student work that would be assessed by evaluators external to the course. Courses on the Supplemental LG-STEM list will not be subject to assessment, so that a broad range of courses may be listed, including offerings that have a STEM focus from non-stem departments and are approved by the Goal 2 STEM Committee. 3.

NEW COURSE DESCRIPTIONS. Not applicable. 8. LIBRARY AND OTHER LEARNING RESOURCES. New courses proposed by faculty for LG- HASS lists may require additional library resources. Emphasis on learning goal achievement may increase attendance at learning centers such as Mathematics and Multiliteracies Centers. It is difficult to predict the need for these resources with any precision. 9. COMPUTING ACCESS FEE. Not applicable. 10. FACULTY RESUMES. Not applicable. 7

8 11. DESCRIPTION OF EQUIPMENT. Not applicable. 12. PROGRAM COSTS. Although the number of credits is reduced by one credit, the focus on learning goals may require some additional resources for departments that will need to offer more courses to meet goals such as Communication for which there are currently insufficient offerings to meet projected demand. Two replacement hires underway in Humanities may be sufficient to meet demand for Communication. Since this proposal will make tracking of student completion of general education requirements more complex, which could add to the academic advising workload, it is proposed that a new position be established in the Wahtera Student Success Center specifically for general education degree audit. The estimated cost for a 9- month position with fringes is $50, SPACE. Not applicable. 14. POLICIES, REGULATIONS AND RULES. The General Education Program is overseen by the General Education Council, which is responsible for interpretation and continuous improvement of the curriculum. The Council evaluates all proposed revisions to the General Education curriculum for consistency with the philosophy and goals of general education. It is responsible for monitoring the General Education Core, HASS, STEM and co-curricular requirements and reviews all proposals for courses to satisfy these requirements. In 2012, a Global Learning Committee and a Communication Committee were established to develop definitions and identify requirements for courses to meet Goal 5 Communication and Goal 3 Global Literacy. Committee responsibilities were refined to include rubric development and suggestions for departments regarding how to achieve these goals in the major. In 2013, it became clear in deliberations by the Assessment and General Education Councils that Goal 2 Knowledge of the Physical and Natural World, Goal 4 Critical/Creative Thinking, Goal 6 Information Literacy, and Goal 8 Values and Civic Engagement needed dedicated Goal Committees, and that the scope of Goal Committee responsibility needed to include assessment of student learning in courses. These Goal Committees are in the process of being established. This proposal would expand Goal Committee responsibility to reviewing and approving courses proposed for LG-HASS or LG-STEM lists. Proposal Review. Courses proposed to satisfy the Core, LG-HASS, LG-STEM and co-curricular requirements are reviewed by the Council. a. Each proposal will include a course description and syllabus that clearly demonstrates how the course will meet the University Student Learning Goal(s) relevant to the General Education requirement at Level 3-Proficient. Up to two Goals can be identified and must be included as course learning goals. Assignments resulting in student work that can be assessed must be clearly identified. b. The appropriate Goal Committee will evaluate the proposals and make recommendations to the General Education Council. If a course has two Goals, it will be reviewed by two Goal Committees. 8

9 c. The appropriate Goal Committee will assess student work from courses on the LG-HASS and LG-STEM lists on a regular and timely basis to ensure they are meeting the University Student Learning Goals and continue to satisfy the General Education requirements. d. The General Education Council will review the results of assessment and regularly review offerings to ensure that a sufficient number of courses are offered on a timely basis to meet Core, LG-HASS and LG-STEM enrollment demands, and will consult with departments about currency of offerings. e. Courses which are not offered on a regular basis or which generate assessment results over time that do not demonstrate that the course is meeting the Goals may be removed from the approved list of General Education courses. 15. ACCREDITATION REQUIREMENTS. Michigan Tech s regional accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission, requires evidence of assessment of learning goals and reviews the role of general education in achieving those goals. 16. IMPLEMENTATION PROCESS AND PLANNED IMPLEMENTATION DATES. LG-HASS and LG-STEM Requirements. The General Education Council in conjunction with the Goal Committees has identified requirements (see Section 15. Proposal Review), provided rubrics to faculty regarding assessment of the relevant USLGs, and developed a procedure for approval of LG-HASS and LG-STEM courses. The Council will create an evaluation form for all Goal Committees and the Council to use for course recommendation and approval. Faculty in non-hass departments may submit courses for approval for LG-HASS using the proposal process described above; faculty in non-stem departments may submit courses for approval for Supplemental LG-STEM using the proposal process described above. There must be enough sections of approved courses to accommodate at least 1250 students per academic year, balanced between the semesters. Proposal evaluation for LG-HASS and LG-STEM courses will take place primarily during spring semester to prepare for the fall Binder Process. Transition Issues. During the transition period from approval to implementation, the current HASS and STEM requirements remain in effect. Students admitted prior to implementation of any change will continue to follow current HASS and STEM requirements. Schedule of Implementation: If the proposed changes are approved in 2013, it is highly recommended that faculty and departments interested in proposing LG-HASS and LG-STEM offerings use the following schedule. In addition, proposals for new General Education Core (HUFA- and SBS-2000 courses) should follow the same schedule. December 2013 January 1 March 31, 2014 Workshop for Faculty Proposing LG-HASS and LG-STEM courses. Course Proposal Review by Goal Committees 9

10 Faculty develop and submit LG-STEM courses (Math, Science and Supplemental STEM) to the Goal 2 STEM Committee for review and approval. Faculty develop and submit LG-HASS courses (with or without the HASS prefixes ECON, FA, HU, PSY and SS) to Goal Committee(s) for Goals which the course proposes to address for review and approval: Goal 3 Global Literacy & Human Culture Committee Goal 4 Critical & Creative Thinking Committee Goal 5 Communication Committee Goal 8 Values & Civic Engagement Committee April 2014 September 2014 October 2014 November - December 2014 Approved courses are submitted by Goal Committees to the General Education Council for final approval. Unapproved courses are returned to the faculty with feedback for revision. Faculty submit revisions to Goal Committees and General Education Council for approval. LG-HASS and LG-STEM courses are submitted to Binder Process. General Education Council reviews LG-HASS and LG-STEM lists to determine whether sufficient courses are offered for each Goal to accommodate at least 1250 students per academic year. LG-HASS and LG-STEM courses which have not been preapproved may go to Goal Committees and General Education Council for review and approval. It is highly recommended that faculty seek approval in spring 2014 or the courses may not make it through the binder process in fall December 2014 January 31, 2015 January-April, 2015 September 2015 Course lists are created. All changes completed. Workshops for faculty on implementing USLGs, applying rubrics, developing assignments, and assessing USLGs. Implementation of LG-HASS and LG-STEM. 17. INTERNAL STATUS OF THE PROPOSAL. This proposal was discussed at length by the General Education Council prior to approval. There have been ongoing discussions with faculty in Social Sciences, Humanities, and Visual & 10
