gharris (Thu, 22 Oct 2015 18:49:51 GMT): Rollback: Please provide a revised course description that provides, in just a few sentences, the main themes/topics to be covered. For example: PSPB 6232. Production Management. Managing the production process from initial design and editing to a final printed and distributed publication. Aspects of traditional production, including printing basics, manufacturing savings, prepress and composition, paper, postage, and best practices. Emerging trends in digital products and delivery.
jackp (Tue, 07 Feb 2017 17:12:01 GMT): Rollback: Arnie. All syllabi must now include information about how much time students are expected to spend every week on the course. You have that information and sample wording from the "Assignment of Credit Hour Policy" handout I sent last semester. If you need help with this let me know.
cbeil (Thu, 11 May 2017 01:54:07 GMT): Rollback: It is unclear how much time students will spend in direct learning experiences with the instructor. The course does not cover 15 weeks; I need documentation of both time spent in and out of class to justify the two credits being earned.
