Art Fisher stated he had received authorization from Gerald Gohering, South Dakota State Certification Director, to initiate a Special Education Graduate Degree Program at OLC, which is over and above this initial request of changing existing courses to 12 graduate credit hours in the existing program. Gerald Gohering suggested OLC also have an articulation agreement with another college with a graduate degree program in special education.
MOTION by Anthony Fresquez that Instructional Affairs Committee approve and support OLC Education Department efforts changing some courses to graduate credit hours (12 hrs) from the existing special education program, which would continue undergraduate credit and reflect duel numbering for those courses.
SECOND Jean Reeves.
Discussion reflecting NCA’s review and the need to keep them advised of academic developments like the SPED program.
Stacy Phelps presented an IT Department modified Course Request as Andy Conrad could not be here today. He distributed a course syllabus, corrected curriculum form and the recommendation form for the new course request for IT 383.
