Rollback: Please upload a syllabus from the last time the course was taught and be sure to include the learning objectives for oral communication. We also need to know how the course will be assessed (include rubric) and need evidence that the prescribed percentage of the grade is being allocated for the oral presentation. Please work with Bethany Kung, who is very familiar with the GPAC requirements and rubrics.
