jackp (Sun, 01 Mar 2015 20:42:07 GMT): Rollback: Connie, the assessment office will never approve this based on the lack of detail in the syllabus. They will want to know the number of hours it meets (especially since it will be for 6 credits) plus they'll want a more detailed course outline of stuff. Feel free to call me and we can talk about this.
jackp (Sun, 22 Mar 2015 20:14:18 GMT): Rollback: Connie: I'm rolling it back again--we're almost there. Can you say how many days this will meet? 2 weeks? And can you outline on a page or two the content of those days? This will need that sort of detail to be approved.
