«DESIGN PROCESS | First Year Seminar  Step # Work Completed Led by Date Location Karen Reilly, Cathy Penfold  West Special Events  1 ...»

-- [ Page 3 ] --

Gain an awareness of and utilize Valencia's resources including the Library, Tutoring Center/Writing Center,  Atlas Lab, Career Center, Academic Advising.

Navigate through Atlas, Financial Aid, Valenciacollege.edu, Catalog, LifeMap tools, Campuses (and the courses  that they are related to), Admin. Services, Academic Support Services, obtaining a parking decal and Valencia  I.D.

Navigate through expectations, hidden rules, bookstore, campus structure, graduation, Faculty/Student  relationship, Advising, Registration/Enrollment process, Navigate through Central Florida (if it's new), Direct Connect, Articulations / Transfer Plans, Delivery modes,  Self‐efficacy, responsibility, GPA computation, clubs and student organizations, polices and procedures (Code  of Conduct) CCE Feedback on SLOs  6/26/2013 Can all these SLOs be covered in a three credit course?

This is a lot to try and cover/integrate into a 3 credit course.

Too many SLOs to adequately teach (cover) in 3 credits.

Should be over two semesters.

This may be too much for 3 credits.  Reduce to survey treatment or deeper and more narrow.

How can/will we cross‐walk these skills so they translate and integrate into other courses?

Who will help instructors adapt their curricula?

So these skills are used once students leave the course?

Will we follow up professional development with support?

No, add personality – purpose and pathways.  Global perspective – personal connection.  Degree audit – plan.  Counselors –  preparation item #6.

No, add personality style to purpose.  Add global perspective to personal connection.  Add life skills behaviors to  preparation.

Other comments: Need accessibility for students with disabilities.  Include counselors, librarians… Are we sure, without doubt, that the current resources (particularly technology) are accessible and meet ADA requirements?   (e.g., “place” #5 – none accessible to blind students).

This is too much for a 3 credit course, unless the course is just a “check‐list”.

Choose a pathway in SLS or recognize them?  Commitment too early could be a mess.

This is all already in the SLS class.  Some of it is accentuated in a heavier manner than other areas.

The problem I see is students learning this in one class and them stopping because they have already gotten through the  class.  Is there any way to connect this to other classes like the intro classes or at least first year classes?

We need overall outreach.

Have we captured everything? Financial literacy? Technology? Learning Styles?

Technology No, usability of app or system technology is great but many don’t know how to use it (easily) SLO re: technology/digital literacy, perhaps?

No, only online and Blackboard are addressed.  A broader approach to technology needs to be discussed.

Not really, however, some technology like MEP does need to work correctly.

Yes. (6 times)) NO!  Students should be able to demonstrate mastery of digital learning strategies to support their learning in college.

Yes, however, a lot is expected for a 3 credit course.

Add “blackboard” to SLO under “Place”.

State this explicitly: “…effectively using available tools and resources (including technology.” No, but is it a separate SLO or a procedure to be integrated into the class?  Technology use might be better addressed as a  course design issue.

No, SLO for utilizing and building awareness of digital literacy.

No, because we assume students know when and how to use technology efficiently.  They need training.

No, doesn’t state personal responsibility to learn how to use various tech tools such as Atlas, Blackboard, etc.

Yes – basic Sufficiently addressed only in “Preparation, Place”.

Tech access is not adequately addressed.  The right of all students to learn despite the allure of emerging technologies is not  addressed.

Financial Literacy Should be included in course to understand education, especially how F, W, retakes affect cost and/or loss of financial aid.

In the Answer Centers, Counseling/Advising and Financial Aid offices.  Yes, the course should be.

Financial aid literacy should be covered in this course, or in orientation.

Not in course, but a skillshop.  The course currently discuses financial literacy but specific financial aid questions would be  better addressed separately.

I think financial aid belongs here.  Financial literacy might be a bit much.

No, there should be a separate course for financial literacy.

Where – Answer Center, My Financial Planker, Skillshops, Orientation, on the website (valenciacollege.edu/finaid) – yes, to  discuss further (and calculation of cost of education within “plan”).





This is not the place to address financial aid/literacy.

State this explicitly: “…taking into account responsible use of resources (including fiscal, environmental, etc.) As a component of goal attainment, financial literacy could be addressed.  Again, this course needs a survey treatment for all  topics.

Through on campus information sessions given by the Financial Aid office.  This course needs to address financial aid and  financial literacy!  So yes, please incorporate it.

No, yes, this course should address financial literacy and I think there should be an SLO under  PLAN for it.

Financial aid could/would be a part of #2 plan.  I think it is an important topic for the course.   Valencia provides workshops and online videos.  Yes, should be added to this course.

No, it needs to be embedded in other courses Co‐curricular (work/skillshops).

This course should require a chapter in “money management” financial literacy.

Easy access to financial aid info needs to be improved on an infrastructure level.  Then this course can point to access points  in that infrastructure.

Use addressed, yes!  However, how do we establish a base of common knowledge/skill levels?  There are no tech.  literacy/competency measures/outcomes.

“Calculate cost” under plan but how do they learn to MANAGE finance?   Financial literacy?

Yes, but not sure there is room for it in this course – perhaps in common co‐curricular program?.

Learning Styles May be implied, but should especially be stated (or at least included) as descriptor for SLO.

Not really, as currently written.

Yes 7 times) Learning styles should be a part of the course.

Yes, however, they may need to be more specifically stated with SLOs.

Our group suggested a change to SLO under “preparation” to: accurately assess their own learning styles” (in lieu of skills).

Yes, in preparation.

No, they were listed as learning skills, not styles.

No, but they should be.

Yes, but needs to be explicit.

Yes, preparation #5 if skills change to styles.

Yes, but why … what is gained?

It is not implied.

We have to go beyond assessment to application.

Yes, but maybe need to state them.

Anything Else?

Holistic approach/school/life balance/affective domain.

I think the course should focus on 3 main areas:  Info Literacy/Digital Learning Strategies/Personal‐Academic Development.

I reiterate course design as a way to integrate and address teaching some of the SLO – sub‐objectives.

More in affective domain.

Holistic approach, affective domain is not clear on any SLOs.

Again, accessibility for students with disabilities needs to be assured.

Add global perspectives.

Opportunity cost of loss income vs. debt.

Accessibility in procurement and development must be designed into the infrastructure.

A little concerned with amount we are expecting faculty to teach in this course.

CCE Feedback on SLOs  6/11/2013 Missing:  formalized mentoring program for meta‐majors.  How?  Not sure..new TLA (??) responsibilities to meet  service requirement.  Include community/business stakeholders for helping with meta majors.

It would be vastly easier to comment if the outcome values were numbered!

Use of My Career Planner Personality assessments Assessments for students, career planner has assessments that students can take to help them better understand  who they are, their strengths and what career may best suit them.

Critical thinking needs to be more explicitly addressed.

Where is information literacy?  This is not the same as digital literacy.

Perhaps some of the time and effort implied in the multiple self‐exploration activities would be better spent on  reinforcing the behaviors that address common academic situations, i.e. time‐management.

Meta‐major sounds like a major commitment for a freshman; META‐MAJOR ‐ Study of Social Sciences.  I don't  know, but something to soften the blow.

Definitions.  For example, does assess mean I know the material, content, etc. well enough to assess my own  ability OR does it mean take an assessment in My Plan.

What is missing?  I like LifeMaps ‐ My Life Goals Assessment.  It is an important component of the student's life  and instrumental in decisions.  It seems this would be preliminary to 'Meta‐Major'.

Digital literacy and/or digital communication beyond Blackboard is needed.

Personal responsibility very difficult to assess.  Also, 'make connections' between courses/discipline is really tough  to achieve.  As faculty, we and the students are all silo'ed (sp) to a great degree.

Do we want to assess life and communication skills or improve them?

More technology opportunities (enhanced reality) to help students:  QR codes on everything Valencia.  FAQ's,   Avoid long lines at Answer Center.

NEW

I think all of these ideas are terrific and can be infused in multiple classes.  What is missing is the  holistic buy‐in by the faculty and the connection faculty needs to make with  staff/counselors/students/technology.  Also Financial Aid needs to somehow be a partner in this and  not a mountain needing to be conquered.

Get faculty in TLA process more involved with meta‐major student groups as part of service  requirement (mentoring?) Information literacy  /  Learning skills What is missing from current outcomes?  Something about personality (you have to be aware of your  own personality style to support time managed initiatives.

Financial literacy (financial planner LifeMap tool) What's missing?  My personality assessments, My Career Planning, My Financial Planner, financial  literacy.

Need more information on understanding meta‐majors and evaluating majors under their preferred  meta major.

What's missing is making assessments mandatory ‐ values, skills, interests, presonality.  These  assessments are crucial in helping the students self‐discovery.
