Curriculum Development Guide

Curriculum is one of the major responsibilities of the faculty.  It entails a knowledge of the discipline, an understanding of pedagogical practices and strategies and an organizational structure aligned with campus, system and statewide policies.  At campus level, the Academic Programs Office  handles the administrative functions, the Office of the Registrar handles student functions and the Faculty Senate oversees curriculum development.  The Teaching Resource Center is trying to assemble all of these aspects in a coherent resource site for faculty, as well as provide the Curriculum Guide for Q2S conversion and transformation.

Available Resources

  • Q2S Curriculum Guide: The guide provides definitions of conversion & transformation, as well as considerations for programs (e.g. majors, minors, tracks, certificates) and the steps for curriculum approval.
  • Campus Resources: This list links faculty to campus resources for various areas of curriculum such as the Bulletin (Catalog), the Campus Calendar, student concerns (e.g. Grade Grievances, audits, adds/drops)
  • Policies & Procedures:  This page provides information about the curriculum development process (to include CourseLeaf information), campus policies, the Master Plan and scheduling resources.

Additional Resources

This guide is being developed by the Q2S Steering Committee, Curriculum Subcommittee.  For more information, please contact:

Because of the substantive nature of the Guide, it is still in development.  The TRC will update the Guide as new sections and new information become available. Stay tuned!
