Course Outlines/Syllabus

Common course outlines that departmentally developed and approved by the Academic Affairs and Standards Council (AASC) shall belong to the college. A course syllabus is a scholarly work and as such is sole property of the faculty member. Upon request, the faculty member shall provide a copy of the syllabus to the administration.

All changes in approved course outlines must be approved by the Academic Affairs and Standards Council. After approved changes have been made, an electronic copy of the revised course outline must be submitted to the Academic Affairs staff person for the master file. The course outline mast file must always reflect the most current course outline and that version is the one that is given to each student at the first class session.

All course outlines must include the following information:

Course title
Course number
Course credits
Academic program
Course description
Text and references required
Course outcomes
Assessment of student performance
Course evaluation
Special accommodations notification

Dissemination of Course Syllabi:

Part 1. Dissemination to Students. Common practice shall be to distribute a course syllabus at the first course meeting. Under exceptional circumstances the syllabus may be distributed after the first course meeting, but no later than the end of the drop/add period for the course. For online or web-enhanced courses that do not meet during the drop/add period, the syllabus shall be posted online no later than 24 hours prior to the end of the drop/add period for the course.

Part 2. Dissemination to College Administration. A faculty member shall upon request, provide a copy of the current course syllabus to the administration within 3 days of the request. Provision of syllabi to the administration under this procedure does not constitute a release of the intellectual property rights of the faculty.

Instructors not complying will be in violation of College policy and subject to disciplinary action as set forth in the MSCF bargaining agreement.

Course descriptions from the course outlines are available on the ATC website located at www.anokatech.edu
