The Development of an Operational Guidebook for Curriculum Committee Members at Seminole Community College.
At Florida's Seminole Community College (SCC), all curriculum change proposals for any of the academic units at the college must first be evaluated and approved by the Curriculum Committee (CC). In an effort to provide CC members with information on college procedures pertaining to the curriculum change process as well as the basic principles of instructional design, an operational guidebook was developed for the committee. This report describes the methodology used to develop the guidebook. Chapter 1 traces the history of the college and describes the administrative approach to curriculum and program planning. Chapter 2 reviews the literature on the importance of periodic curriculum and program review, and discusses the specific relevance of a curriculum guidebook for SCC. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 present the steps undertaken to develop the guidebook for SCC, discuss the results of the guidebook development process, and offer conclusions and recommendations. The guidebook itself is appended. The first section reviews the procedure for appointing CC members, and describes the SCC's curriculum change process and procedures. The next section provides a copy of the institutional impact statement form to be submitted with a new course proposal, a new course proposal form, a course change proposal form, and the SCC format for course syllabi. The final three sections provide rules of order for meetings, guidelines for evaluating course proposals, and a list of committee members. (PAA)
