A breakout on the topic was presented at the S07 Plenary Session. Regarding the issue of curriculum duplication, the presenters emphasized the role that faculty should take in the processes for developing not-for-credit courses.
Whereas, California community colleges may offer not-for-credit (community service) courses;
Whereas, Title 5 does not stipulate the breadth and depth of not-for-credit course offerings; and
Whereas, Not-for-credit course offerings are now duplicating degree-credit, non-degree credit, and noncredit course offerings;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate research the issue of not-for-credit courses duplicating degree credit, non-degree credit, and non-credit courses and conduct a breakout at the Fall 2002 Plenary Session to provide clarification and direction of course offerings in these curriculum modes.
