  • By the end of the training you will be able to explain why the U.S. Department of Education made the regulation changes. You will be able to understand the misrepresentations regulation fully and be able to comply with them. You will also be able to understand the credit hours regulation as it pertains to outside coursework and make the necessary changes to your lesson plan.Segue: This training does not provide specific analysis on each regulation but highlights critical new legal requirements which we will review for your role.
  • So why were these changes brought about? They were brought about to improve the integrity in the programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and our accrediting bodies to better protect and serve our students. This will help us to change our students’ lives. Which will ultimately assist us in achieving our vision of becoming the Best Career Education Company in World. Segue: Let’s look at these regulations a little closer
  • This regulation is all about prohibiting providing “misleading” statements to current and prospective students, as well as businesses, accrediting agencies, states, Department of Education or any member of the public.  
  • Walking the talk- This should sound familiar because last fall we had our Walking the Talk days and we all signed “I Will Statements” that in part say we will not provide misleading statements. We have a commitment to accuracy, honesty and integrity and we always have – this is not new. We didn’t start this because of anything the Department of Education has told us to do. It is a part of who we are; the first pillar of our Core Values is Integrity. Integrity is about operating from a commitment to accuracy and honesty.
  • Some instructors are confused and get accreditation mixed up with state licensing and certifications. We are accredited but we may not have some state licenses or certifications. However, because we do not have these does not mean we are not accredited.
  • Animate to have agreement with all except Students. (cross out animation)
  • (Place animation for answer to question.)Here are some statements that have been heard around the campuses. Refer to your program manager in Curriculum or the Accrediting and Licensing department. Which of these statements is a violation of the misrepresentation regulation?Remember that commitment you made to providing honest and accurate information by singing the “”I Will Statement;” a commitment to not make misleading statements. Continue to live up to that commitment and we’ll all …

  • In order to meet Federal regulations related to program integrity the Bryman Curriculum Team did the following…Update curriculum to meet federal regulations related to program integrityDevelop standardized syllabus templates for identified programsIdentify out-of-class activities and quantify time-on-taskReview/update all programs for appropriate in-class and out-of-class activitiesReview/update all programs for inclusion of assessments which achieve outcomes and objectives; including appropriate grading categoriesReview/update all programs for inclusion of learning resource activities (LRSA) to address use of online learning resourcesWhat we did not do…Make significant content changes to existing programs and courses

  • Given all of the changes needed, we took this opportunity to change the syllabi. We have a new organized and standardized template which will be available for you on June 20, 2011 through the Bryman portal. If you use lesson plans you will need to base them on the plan provided for you in the syllabi. You will notice most areas arelocked down including the verbiage for the accreditors in bold on the front. You will have the ability to enter your class specific information next to the blue boxes here. (show red highlighted areas)The course description, objectives and resources have been locked down. We have also raised level of Bloom’s taxonomy. Objectives now require students to be able to demonstrate not just know what they are learning.Better written learning objectives which align with course description and program outcomes (for some programs)
  • Teaching Strategies will be locked down Grading categoryIncludes teaching strategy & course policiesIncludes a grade category for out-of-class assignments
  • The new Syllabi has included the new curriculum to meet the new regulation requirements. As instructors we understand and encourage the desire for academic freedom. You are welcome to enhance the program with supplemental material however, in order for us to meet the regulation and accreditation requirements you can not take anything away from the program. If you choose to add any assignments please make sure you assign a time on task to it and add it to the TOT column. Includes a course outline which maps objectives, in-class-assignments, out-of-class assignments and assessmentsIncludes a Grade Category for professionalismFaculty should develop a Professionalism rubric to which includes a Grade Category for Out-of-Class Assignments Course outline is broken up into Units instead of day’s or weeksLesson PlanEach assignment in and out of class must be listed with hours attached to it. We have entered the information based on yourYou will need to calculate this in the TOT boxAssessments must be listedSyllabus may be used as the lesson plan with DOE/PC approval All syllabi must be changed over by 7/1/11 and turned into supervisor
  • What are our next steps? We need to ensure we are doing right by our students by not only walking the walk and talking the talk but also by not misleading them to believe things we can not absolutely guarantee. Each of you will need to revise your lesson plans to include the outside course requirements of 2:1 and adjust the grading percentages to have outside course work equal 10% of the students’ gradeYou will need to pull a new syllabus template, fill in lesson plan and turn in to Program Chair by 7/1/11
  • Say: That concludes our training today.What questions do you have for me?
