Title: SLOs and Curriculum Part 1 SLOs and Program Review Part 2


1
SLOs and Curriculum Part 1SLOs and Program
Review Part 2
  • Marcy Alancraig, English, Cabrillo College
  • Sid Burks, Automotive, Chaffey College
  • Janet Fulks, Biology, Bakersfield College
  • Adam Karp, Spanish, American River College
  • Dee Near, Librarian, Merced College
  • Steve Reynolds, English (Interim Dean), College
    of the Siskiyous

Break Out Description
  • Join our experienced group of curriculum chairs
    and Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) coordinators
    for a focus on SLOs in two parts.
  • In Part 1, we answer Who evaluates the SLO
    how is that tied to curriculum process?  Do SLO
    evaluations occur by an official subcommittee of
    curriculum or the SLO coordinator? How do you
    document the process for annual reporting to the
    ACCJC?
  • In Part 2, we answer Is the curriculum review
    process, program review process and SLOs and
    assessment tied together?   How do the SLOs
    affect curriculum review of general education
    courses.
  • Warning, this is a 2 ½ hour breakout but you
    will get a biobreak!

3
What the !? is an SLO?
  • A student learning outcome is what students can
    do at the end of instruction (course, program, or
    degree) with the knowledge they have gained.

4
What the !? is an SLO?
  • Clearly describes what students can do.
  • Aligns curriculum with these outcomes.
  • Directs content and assignments.
  • This is an evolution of best teaching practices,
    not a revolution
  • Lars Kjeseth, El Camino College

5
Sample SLOs
  • Workbook Appendix A
  • Written Differently in detail, tone, and language
  • Do not simply convert objectives to outcomes but
    do review objectives to see if they are actually
    outcomes.
  • Student Services samples Appendix A

6
SLOs in the COR or Not?
Why in the COR ? Provides a place to document SLOs CORs are available to everyone CORs provides quality control so that adjunct faculty are also bound to the same outcomes. Allows courses within a program to look at other linked classes Helps in filling out the annual report WHY not in the COR? Problems if the outcomes, which are draft, may change the upkeep of the COR may be demanding The process of changing all CORs to include SLOs may be overwhelming SLOs in the COR may be too prescriptive if done wrong SLOs in the COR may conflict with SLOs in transfer courses
7
Curriculum Review
  • How often, or on what cycle, is curriculum
    reviewed on your campus?
  • If you were to flow chart or draw this process,
    what would it look like?

ARC and Socrates the district-wide online
process
  • Adam feel free to adjust
  • The Los Rios District has developed their own
    curriculum software (Socrates)
  • SLOs are incorporated in to the curriculum
    document of record.
  • Every curriculum document is viewable throughout
    the district online.
  • Real time visible changes are viewable online.
  • Updates to Title 5 are automatically made.
  • The accreditation report for curriculum is in
    Socrates and therefore automatically updated.
  • This has changed the colleges approach to
    curriculum, reducing obstacles, making it
    efficient and effective.

13
College of the Siskiyous
  • Steve feel free to adjust
  • (1) SLOs and assessment descriptions have been
    integrated into the template for Official Course
    Outlines
  • (2) Student learning and SLOs are mentioned in
    two of the goals in the colleges Strategic
    Master Plan. 
  • (3) SLO reporting is now required as part of
    departmental annual planning processes in
    Instruction and in Student Services. 
  • (4) SLOs are part of the program review
    process.

Mapping your process
  • Now it is your turn.
  • Step 1 Flow chart, graph or draw a picture of
    how curriculum moves through the curriculum
    process on your campus.
  • Step 2 Where would SLOs overlay that process on
    your campus.

33
SLO Approvals
  • Who evaluates SLOs on your campus?
  • How it is tied to Curriculum approval process?

34
Program Review
  • How often do programs cycle through program
    review on your campus?
  • Does your program review include SLOs and
    assessment data?

35
Merced Example of Program Review
  • Dee any notes here? Do you want the slides here
    or in the earlier slot or both?

Other Program Review Patterns
  • Adam Janet Annual report feeds into Educational
    Master Plan
  • Sid- briefly describes how outcomes inform all
    budget requests

39
Mapping your program review process
  • Now it is your turn again.
  • Step 1 Flow chart, graph or draw a picture of
    the program review process on your campus.
  • Step 2 Where would SLOs overlay that process on
    your campus.

40
General Education
  • How do you determine which courses fit into your
    general education program?
  • What does Title 5 say?
  • What do ACCJC accreditation standards expect?

41
Important Points of Practice
  • Local culture must be the rule of thumb
  • Use existing committees that work well
  • Make the dialogue meaningful and important to
    their daily work
  • This is not all new - Dont say anything that
    devalues the expertise and abilities of your
    faculty
  • This is a cycle, SLOs is a first step
  • This is good pedagogy It is all about student
    learning
  • Directs curriculum and program review to quality
    education
  • Provides for all sections of curriculum looking
    at same end point with continuity and
    transparency, but does disregard different ways
    to get there.
  • Aligns prerequisites and shared expectations
    between various sections, department, programs
    and with adjuncts
