Proposal for New Academic Plan

Fall 2016

If this new plan is not listed in the current NAU academic program inventory, then you must first

complete the academic planning framework

If this new certificate will be eligible for federal financial aid, then please submit the gainful

employment application.

All Plans with NCATE/CAEP designation, or plans seeking NCATE/CAEP designation, must

include an NCATE/CAEP Accreditation Memo of Approval from the NAU NCATE/CAEP

administrator prior to submission.

UCC proposals must include an 8-term plan (if applicable).

UGC proposals must include a program of study.

3. Academic Plan Name: 4. Emphasis: None Learning GCRT

5. Plan proposal: New Plan New Emphasis

6. Justification for the new plan or certificate, including how the need for the plan was determined.

Please also address how it is designed to meet local market, professional requirements, employment opportunities, or other needs.

NAU currently offers a 30-credit M.Ed. in Human Relations degree. This program is available online as well as in-person. An 18-hour graduate certificate in the Psychology of Human Development and Learning can be added using courses that are all part of this program and are also part of other graduate programs in the department. The addition of this graduate certificate will assist current and potential community college faculty to meet Higher Learning Commission (HLC) requirements for instructional competence. This certificate will also help high school teachers who teach an introductory psychology class that enables high school students to earn dual credit (high school and community college). This certificate will provide us with an opportunity to increase our graduate enrollment as well document the students who need classes in this area to help them meet the HLC requirements for instructional competence. According to personal communication with Extended Campuses administration and information on the Maricopa website, there appears to be a strong need for courses in this area. This program will also assist other working professionals in the business sector as well as K-12 education that need to expand their knowledge in the area of learning and human behavior and do not wish to pursue the master’s degree.

I wanted to get back to you concerning the grad certificate. I spoke with our graduate committee. Overall, no one related any concerns over the College of Education taking on this certificate.

The only issue that came up was the title of the certificate. There was concern over the title "Psychology of Learning."

Some suggestions that were made were:

- Educational Psychology of Learning

- Psychological Principles of Teaching and Learning

- Human Development, Teaching, and Learning

- Principles of Human Development and Learning If the title is changed, this email provides our (Psychological Sciences) support for College of Education development of this certificate. If you want to discuss the title in more detail, let me know.

Best, Ann Ann Hergatt Huffman, Ph.D.

Evidence from visual psychophysics suggests that when the stave has thick lines, perceptual distortions are likely to affect the clarity of the score adversely.
