CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 4
  5. 5. 3. MATTERS ARISING FROM PREVIOUS MINUTES Ms Manor Cooper advised that items 3.1 – 3.4 should be deleted as these were resolved at the previous meeting. 3.1 Management of ITC306 – Project Preparation and Professional Practice Ms Jo Lawrence voiced her concerns regarding the logistics of managing ITC306 – Project Preparation and Professional Practice. With fifty students enrolled in the subject and doing six different majors, it was difficult for one Subject Convenor to organise, supervise and assess projects in the different majors. While happy to be Subject Convenor, Ms Lawrence sought advice on staff who had experience in the different areas and who would be able to organise, supervise and assess the students’ projects. A suggestion that Dr Glen Duncan from the School of Marketing & Management be approached to draft an IT Management project for the subject, however, Dr Duncan’s workload would have to be taken into consideration. It was agreed that Ms Lawrence hold further discussions with Dr Tanja Lang and other Course Co-ordinators and report back to the next CDC meeting. John Atkinson reported that he had investigated the number of students enrolled in each major and the results of the investigation can be viewed on the S Drive/Common/Temp Folder less than 30 days/CDC/BIT review/BIT subjects in each major for further reference. 4. REPORT FROM THE PRESIDING OFFICER • Student Workload Expectations Dr Atkinson advised that while the ‘business’ subjects have three hours face to face teaching, all information technology and mathematics subjects have four hours face to face teaching. This has implications for the discipline and the common workload policy. The Dean’s Advisory Committee has referred the issue to the Faculty Learning and Teaching Committee. Dr Atkinson requested the Schools to discuss the issue and provide feedback to CDC for forwarding to the Faculty Learning and Teaching Committee. • Credit for TAFE Certificate III Faculty policy does not allow credit for a TAFE Certificate III. A credit package for TAFE Certificate III will be prepared for recommendation to the Faculty Board. CDC 08/03 The Faculty of Business Computing and Discipline Committee agreed to receive the report from the Presiding Officer. 4.1 Report from Albury Discipline Committee There was no report from the Albury Discipline Committee CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 5
  6. 6. 4.2 Report from Wagga Discipline Committee There was no report from the Wagga Discipline Committee 4.3 Report from Bathurst Discipline Committee There was no report from the Bathurst Discipline Committee 4.4 Report from Sub Dean International Information Technology There was no report from the Sub Dean International Information Technology 4.5 Report from Sub Dean Course Quality There was no report from the Sub Dean Course Quality 4.6 Report from Sub Dean IT Industry Programs There was no report from the Sub Dean IT Industry Programs 5. ACCREDITATION OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS AT CSU Confirmation of the level of accreditation is being sought from the Australian Computer Society (ACS) as only verbal approval has been attained. Dr Atkinson, after consultation with Associate Professor John Messing and Associate Professor Irfan Altas, advised ACS that the Industry Masters Programs are withdrawn from the accreditation application. The criteria were unacceptable and did not need the requirements of the program. The ACS website needs to be checked to ensure that correct information is provided. 6. AUSTRALIAN COMPUTER SOCIETY – UNIVERSITY COMPACT The members requested that Dr John Atkinson seek clarification on some of the points in the “Australian Computer Society – University Compact” form and report back to the next CDC meeting. 7. SPECIAL CONSIDERATION TO THE PCR POLICY The current Faculty Policy on Proficiency Credits (PCR) does not allow granting of PCR for any Level Three subjects. Ms Maumita Bhattacharya brought the issue to the CDC requesting it to consider a provision for “Special Considerations” to the PCR policy to avoid deserving students being disadvantaged by the Faculty Policy. It was decided that discussion should take place in the Schools and if there is a definite issue it should be brought back to the CDC. It was requested that the Faculty policy on PCR should be circulated so that this discussion can take place. CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 6
  7. 7. 10. URGENT BUSINESS 10.1 Report from the Presiding Officer (Item 4) Refer to Item 4 10.2 Report from 2008 Colloquium Due to time constraints the report from 2008 Colloquium was not discussed. An extraordinary meeting of the CDC will be held to discuss the majors in the BIT. 10.3 ITC306, ITC308, ITC309 – Majors This item was discussed in Matters Arising (Item 3.1). 10.4 Bachelor of Industry Computing (Executive Summary) With falling enrolment numbers in the Information Technology courses at CSU, CSU has partnered with The IT Masters Pty Ltd (TITM) to develop an innovative series of courses targeted at the ICT market. With the bachelor of Industry Computing course, students will be gaining employment in the ICT industry while undertaking the course. The proposed course: 1. incorporates internationally recognised IT Industry Certifications. 2. produces work-ready students in the initial phase of the course. 3. further enhances professional competence and employment advantage for the student as they continue to study relevant topics while gaining industry experience in the final phase of the course. There were concerns about hows HECS, Student Visa’s and Centrelink etc. would be affected by such a course. A motion was moved and approved, in principle, by CDC for the course to be put through CASIMS after approval by APC. 10.5 Generic Structure for Bachelor of IT / Computer Science / Computer Science (Games Technology) Honours The generic course structure was considered for three different courses, Bachelor of IT / Computer Science / Computer Science (Games Technology) Honours. However, each one of these three courses will require separate course profiles. A motion was moved and approved, on principle, by CDC for the courses to be put through CASIMS after approval by UCPC. 10.6 Credit Packages 10.6.1 Australian Institute of Commerce and Training CDC 08/04 CDC agreed to recommend the credit package to the Faculty Board for approval. 10.7 Subject Profiles CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 7

CHARLES STURT UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF BUSINESS COMPUTING DISCIPLINE COMMITTEE The minutes of the Extraordinary Computing Discipline meeting held on 3 March 2008 via Video Conference commencing at1-30pm. Present: Dr John Atkinson (Chair) Associate Professor Irfan Altas Dr Michael Antolovich Mr Jeff Ash Dr Tony Dean Associate Professor Junbin Gao Dr Tanja Lang Dr Ken Lodge Associate Professor John Messing Apologies: Mr Errol Chopping Ms Joanne Lawrence In Attendance: Ms Bernadette Curtis Associate Professor Ross Wilson (Right of audience and debate) Mr Oliver Burmeister (observer) Mr Noel Witney (observer) 10.1 BIT STRUCTURE REVIEW – MAJORS Introduction: Dr John Atkinson advised the meeting that the Extraordinary Meeting was called to discuss the majors within the Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) - Majors. The dilemma is how to sustain six majors in the course with the declining student numbers in the BIT. The extraordinary meeting is conducted as an ordinary meeting with the minutes of this meeting ratified at the CDC Meeting on Friday 14 March 2008. The main points were made at the meeting: • With the current student numbers it is difficult to sustain six (6) majors in the BIT. • BIT currently provides 1/3 of the income for the Computer Discipline. • Champions are lacking in any particular major. CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 11
  12. 12. Three options were considered: 1. Maintain current structure 2. Going back to the previous BIT structure 3. Suspension of certain majors within the current BIT The following issues will be investigated prior to the next meeting to assist the CDC in making appropriate decisions: • Dr Ken Lodge will look into the mechanism for suspending majors. • Identify the campus which would best specialise in a major and to make that major only available from that campus. • Each campus will identify majors that may be suspended on their respective campuses and report back to the next CDC meeting. • By lunchtime Friday 7 March 2008, the proposed structure for the major with 8 subjects will be forwarded to the CDC Secretary for compiling. 13. NEXT MEETING The next meeting of the Computing Discipline Committee will be held on Friday 14 March 2008, 10-00am to 12-00pm, via videoconference.

These are the documents that originally went to FCC in error. They have already been QA’d as part of the FCC process, and the necessary changes made. Because of the unconventional path these documents have taken (to the CDC via the FCC) I am unable to submit them via CASIMS; hence the reason they are included here. The documents are: ITI526 Network Design (Existing subject with amendments proposed) CDC Agenda 14 March 2008 14
  15. 15. ITI527 Internetworking Expert (Proposal for new subject) ITI540 Enterprise Administration (Proposal for new subject) ITI541 Configuring Application Platforms (Proposal for new subject) Regards, Jason Howarth Lecturer in Information Technology Course Coordinator – IT Masters Programs Charles Sturt University Wagga Wagga N.S.W Australia 2678 email: jhowarth@csu.edu.au phone: 02 6933 2374 mobile: 0488 213389 fax: 02 6933 2080 Hi John, Bernadette, (Members to receive documentation directly from Jason Howarth) There are four more late agenda items for Friday’s CDC if that is still possible: Master of Database Design and Management Articulated Set Master of Information Systems Security Articulated Set Master of Systems Development Articulated Set ITC543 Enterprise Design Patterns Can these be added to the late agenda and I will distribute them with the other late agenda docs (listed below) to all CDC members today / tomorrow morning? My apologies for this late material but it is the nature of these industry courses that changes often need to be made in a hurry. ITI111 Computer Support Technician 1 ITI112 Supporting Desktop Applications ITI113 Deploying and Maintaining Desktop Clients ITI114 IT HelpDesks ITI211 Computer Support Technician II ITI212 Career Search and Communication ITI213 IT Project Management Introduction ITI214 Computer Networks ITI311 Project Lifecycles ITI312 Enterprise Support ITI542 Securing Networks Bachelor of Industry Computing (planning and approval documents). John: one more query. Should all these late documents be officially submitted via CASIMS or should I wait until I do QA changes after the CDC meeting before this happens?
