WHAT: Convening Faculty to Consider the Development of C-ID descriptors and Areas of Emphasis Transfer Model Curriculum in Global Studies/International Relations and Diversity Studies
WHY: This is the first phase in an effort to develop Area of Emphasis (AOE) Transfer Model Curricula (TMCs) to address the recent SB 440 <http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201320140SB440> (Padilla, 2013) mandate. The Intersegmental Curriculum Workgroup (ICW), which consists of faculty and system representatives from both CCC and CSU, adopted the following working definition of an Area of Emphasis TMC on January 30, 2014:
An area of emphasis is an interdisciplinary TMC that is developed to serve multiple majors at the CSU. Such a TMC may not have a clear department of origin at the CCC and would be designed to prepare the student for an array of majors at the CSU.
These meetings are “come one, come all” to encourage wide participation and perspectives. Travel costs will not be reimbursed, but a light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Later, faculty will be appointed by their respective state senate to serve on the Faculty Discipline Review Group that will prepare draft documents for statewide vetting.
WHO: We need CCC faculty from the disciplines below, or related disciplines that might be a component of one of the proposed areas of emphasis, and CSU faculty from disciplines that might be able to accept one of these areas of emphasis as lower division major preparation, to join in a discussion of the proposed areas of emphasis (and associated descriptors). In addition, we need articulation officers to assist each group.
