Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. This course can be taught as an INBIO topics course. There is no need for a separate course number and description for the class. It can now be part of the IS program. This course was proposed while the bio dept. was undergoing its 4 credit and ISP changes. While the course description implies that the course was for education majors, it could have been taken by any student. In reality, it has never been offered. Any INBIO topics course may be taken by education students or any other non-bio majors. There is no reason for a specific advisory opinion from Education. RESOURCES: No additional resources required. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? No additional library resources required. ADVISORY OPINIONS: No affected departments.
