Starting in January outcomes will be reviewed more closely than has been the case in the past. If they are not consistent with PCC’s Criteria and Principles for Outcomes (http://www.pcc.edu/resources/academic/ccog/documents/CoursesOutcomesGuidelines.pdf ), they will likely be returned to the SAC for revision.  The Curriculum Support Office has Instructional Designers who have been trained in PCC’s Outcomes Criteria/Principles and are available to assist faculty in writing outcomes.  However, such consultation does not guarantee that the Curriculum Committee will automatically recommend them for approval, and they will still need to be submitted for review.

Curriculum Committee recommends that the New Course and Course Revision forms be amended to inform the faculty of the consultation services for outcomes and other instructional design issues via the Curriculum Office.
