Noncredit/Curriculum Regional Meetings
The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges is excited to announce our first ever Noncredit Curriculum Regional Meetings! The meetings will be Friday, March 20 at Foothill College and Saturday, March 21 at Cerritos College. In the 15-16 academic year, the funding for some noncredit courses (Career Development and College Preparation) will be equal to credit courses. Due to these funding changes, CTE initiatives and the restructuring of adult and continuing education, colleges will need to use this opportunity to examine their noncredit and credit courses and assess how they can best serve the needs of their students.
We will begin the day with a presentation on the nuts and bolts of noncredit curriculum and programs. John Stanskas, the Senate’s AB 86 workgroup representative, will offer some insights as to how funding changes can impact opportunities for our students in basics skills and CTE programs. After lunch, we will ask college teams to discuss the viability and opportunity of noncredit instruction to benefit their students and how their college’s decision-making processes may impact the discussion at their colleges. Curriculum committee members and participants from colleges with noncredit programs will be on hand to provide guidance about the opportunities and challenges in noncredit. The goal of this session is for participants to draft a working plan to help colleges make informed decisions about the appropriate curricular offerings at their colleges.
We encourage you to bring a team of faculty, senate leaders, curriculum chairs, and administrators who are making decisions about building their noncredit programs and evaluating curriculum. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required so we can ensure appropriate lunch accommodations. When you register, please identify which of your team members are faculty and which are administrators.
