CM 021 Construction Graphics.
Instruction and exercises in graphic techniques and procedures applicable to construction. Analysis of drawings in the civil, architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical fields and how drawings affect construction planning. Freehand sketching. Isometric and oblique projections. Material quantity surveying. Lecture 2 hour; Laboratory three hours. 3 units.
Justification: The delivery mode of the class has been changed from a three-lab format/week format to two lectures and one lab (no unit change). This change will strike a better balance between the number of credits students receive and the number of classroom hours they are required to attend. Previously, students were required to attend 3 lab sessions each week for a three-unit class. Under the new format the contact time will be reduced to 5 hours per week. The course content will not change significantly, though some of the assignments will be adjusted, and students will be required to take an assessment exam at the beginning of the semester to demonstrate their preparedness. Students will be expected to do more work outside the classroom, which they are capable of, and the reduction in contact time will make their class schedules easier to develop.

COURSE CHANGE

NURS 143 Leadership and Management in Nursing Practice.
Course description unchanged. Change in course classification. 5 units.
Justification.
Requesting change in course classification. Currently the course is a C1//C18. We are requesting a change to C1/S1 which would allow more flexibility in determining workload. Currently the C18 requires a section to be opened for every 20 students at a 6 WTU workload. The problem arises when a class does not divide equally by 20. If there are 70 students, that requires 4 sections totaling 24 WTU. With an S1 course classification, each student would generate a .25 WTU and not require that unnecessary sections be opened. This will be more cost effective.

Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies

COURSE CHANGE

RLS 001 Orientation to Recreation and Leisure Studies.
Introduction to the Recreation and Leisure Studies major with an emphasis on degree options, major advising, referrals to GE for general advising, information about the RLS undergraduate student association, other local, statewide and national professional associations, scholarship opportunities, the 600-hour volunteer/paid placement prior to the internship, an overview of the internship process and a discussion about producing work in core and non-core RLS courses for the portfolio requirement. 3 units.
Justification.
This course is being modified in conjunction with RLS 101. We have been teaching RLS 001 over the past year and have realized that we need to provide students with more discussion of the major and more opportunities to hear from guest speakers who are professionals who may assist them in completing their pre-internship and internship requirements. We also realized that RLS 001 should be more of an introduction and orientation to the major while RLS 101 should focus more on actually preparing students for their internship and completing their portfolio. The associated unit increase is more than compensated for by other program changes being submitted (actual units to graduation decrease by 1).
Note: RLS 001 should be taken in the student's first semester. Graded Credit/No Credit.

COURSE CHANGE

RLS 101 Senior Seminar.

Justification.
In keeping with accreditation expectations and our ongoing process of curriculum review, the RLS faculty has determined that we need to increase the units in our undergraduate research class from 2 to 3. This unit increase is accommodated in terms of total units to graduation by other program changes also being submitted (total units to graduation actually decreases by 1).

COURSE CHANGE

RLS 171 Professional Organization Leadership.
Course description unchanged. 3 units.
Justification.
This is a minor, but technically substantive change. We are simply changing the pre-requisite wording from “RLS 030, RLS 032, RLS 105 and instructor permission” to “RLS 030, RLS 032, RLS 105 or instructor permission” in recognition of some students’ prior experience.

Provides an analysis of major research methods used in recreation and leisure studies. Addresses basic and applied research orientations, research designs, research proposals, data collection tools and methods, data analysis, and reporting of research findings. 3 units.
Justification.
There are 3 changes:
1. The title is changed to distinguish between this class and the re-named undergraduate research/evaluation class.
2. In the graduate class, evaluation is included in research methods as evaluative research. The language used in the course description has been corrected to reflect this and has also been corrected grammatically.
3. Prerequisites have been added to facilitate sequencing and efficiency of graduate course offerings. The prerequisite classes are already required courses and will not increase student work load. Requiring these prerequisite classes and requiring advisor approval before taking RLS 204 will ensure that students take it at the time that it is needed to facilitate completion of the culminating experience.
Prerequisite: RLS 200, RLS 202, and graduate advisor approval.

 

COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES & MATH

Department of Biological Sciences

COURSE CHANGE

BIO 167 Quantitative Methods in Biology. Focus on statistical hypothesis testing and experimental design in the biological sciences. Topics include the development of a hypothesis, study design and implementation, management and presentation of data, identification of data types, and appropriate use of statistical procedures. Has general application to a wide range of biological disciplines and will emphasize the scientific process, critical thinking skills, and the interpretation of statistical results, which will include a project culminating in a scientific paper and presentation. 3 units.
Justification: This request is to change the title and emphasis of the course. The title clarifies and reflects the broad range of topics to be covered in the course. The emphasis of the course will be on the development of hypotheses, appropriate study designs, and the interpretation of data, along with the traditional overview of statistical tests. This course will focus on the "doing" of biology, and skills, such as critical thinking and interpretation, will play a major part.
I have found that students have been confused and intimidated by the "Biometrics" title, and I hope to clarify its purpose with this name change. "Biometrics" was originally termed for a field that statistically approached biological systems. In recent years, the term has been largely changed and used now as the label for the field interested in the techniques of studying physical characteristics of a person (e.g., iris pattern, fingerprints, etc).
The name change will also clarify students applying for jobs and graduate school. "Quantitative Methods in Biology" is a course offered at many universities and the title makes it wholly clear what is present in its content. I believe a course name change will also prevent any confusion by schools and employers in assessing the type of training the student has received.
Note: Lecture two hours; laboratory three hours. Fall only.
Prerequisite: BIO 011, BIO, 012, STAT 001

Department of Geography

NEW COURSE

GEOG 5 Violent Weather. Provides an introduction to meteorological and climatological principles.

Mechanisms and the nature of natural and human-caused climate change will also be explored.3 units.
Justification: Existing meteorology and climate courses taught in the Geography Department do not emphasize the important topic of Earth’s severe and violent weather phenomena. This course will explore the physical and geographic aspects of Earth’s violent weather as well as the social dimensions of severe weather events.

COLLEGE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION

NEW COURSE

EDTE 369G Advanced Placement Institute: French Language . Assists high school AP teachers in planning their curriculum and preparing their students to succeed on the AP French Language exam. The course explores teaching strategies (vertical team concept), and covers curricular areas, test-taking skills, and the use of current instructional technology (internet, powerpoint, etc.) 2 units.
Justification:
Advanced Placement (AP) training for instructors is not offered in the CSUS Region. The need for effective professional development has been a well-researched topic in the past decade. Professional development days are now considered a requirement for most teachers in grades K-12. In Elk Grove School District alone, 6 out of 12 high schools offer AP French Language. By providing AP teachers with professional development opportunities we can assure quality of instruction to college-bound students and, ultimately, better prepare entering freshmen for their undergraduate work.
Prerequisite: Teacher Credential
