dullman (Fri, 02 Jan 2015 20:52:56 GMT): Rollback: Either remove the GPAC attribute or contribute a syllabus and the other materials needed to propose this course for the curriculum.
bradly (Wed, 21 Jan 2015 14:31:30 GMT): Rollback: Rolling back.
bradly (Tue, 27 Jan 2015 17:00:34 GMT): Rollback: Connie, this either needs the additional gpac materials (sample assignments/rubrics) or we need to remove the attribute for the time being--your choice.
dullman (Thu, 28 May 2015 17:58:18 GMT): Rollback: There are two options here: (1) Keep the "special topics" nature of the course, allowing repetition, but remove the GPAC attributes, or (2) Keep the GPAC attributes, but make the course non-repeatable. We do not allow topics courses to be part of the GPAC curriculum. Either option is fine with me.
gharris (Wed, 23 Sep 2015 17:27:19 GMT): Rollback: Please confirm that I may delete "May be repeated once for credit provided the topic differs" from course description. Thank you.
