Due Date Event
August Convocation Week

Departmental meetings:
Chairs/Leads will collaborate with faculty teaching courses responsible for the social and personal responsibility core objectives to ensure they have an assignment assessable by the rubrics.


Chairs/leads will facilitate a key assignment discussion so that all faculty teaching a given course have a plan to identify an existing assignment that is assessable by each core objective the course is responsible for. Faculty will be encouraged to interact with faculty teaching the same course to design a shared key assignment by the end of spring 2014.
