University of Kentucky's First Dual Credit Partnership Proposal to Undergraduate Council, 18 June 2013 University of Kentucky's First Dual Credit Partnership Proposal to Undergraduate Council, 18 June 2013 Document Transcript

  •                                   June 17, 2013 TO: Undergraduate Council FROM: Benjamin C. Withers Interim Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education RE: Dual Credit Agreement UK/FCPS for STEAM Academy Please find under the cover of this letter materials pertaining to an application for a dual credit offering of the course UK 110: College Readiness. This college-level, one-credit course was specially created by Dr. Laurie Henry to be offered through the STEAM Academy, under the administrative supervision of the UK College of Education. As noted in the MOA, the Fayette County Public School system has agreed that it will count toward the student’s high school graduation requirements. Carrying college-level credit and meeting high school requirements, this course marks UK’s first dual credit offering. This opportunity for establishing a dual credit agreement, which aligns with several institutional goals and supports the STEAM Academy project, was brought to my attention by Dean of the College of Education and supported by faculty in that college. It has been my role as interim Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education (APUE) to work with Dr. Henry and the staff of the College of Education to ensure that the process and results are in accord with University Policy (Senate Rules 3.2.0 and Senate Rules 4.2.1.3.4) and the procedures outlined by the University Senate (details available at: http://www.uky.edu/UGE/dual_credit.html). With this letter I attest that Dr. Henry and the staff in the College of Education have followed the procedures outlined in the Senate documents. The supporting materials provided here document the process as outlined under the “Lifecycle” section of the Senate guidelines.

  • Undergraduate Council June 17, 2013 Page 2 Because the dual credit agreement centers on a course with a UK prefix (offered through Undergraduate Studies rather than the College of Education), we have made sure that approvals have been forthcoming from both deans. 1. Initial Contact a. A formal letter from the FCPS Superintendent. b. Dr. Henry’s Curriculum Vitae. (Because Dr. Henry is a member of the UK faculty, we have not included transcripts as suggested in the Senate procedures). c. The course syllabus and outline prepared by Dr. Henry. d. The Memorandum of Agreement with the FCPS Superintendent’s signature. 2. Approval by the department and dean of the college a. Approval for the use of UK 110 by the APUE/Dean of Undergraduate Studies. b. A letter from Parker Fawson, chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, indicating that unit’s support as well as their assurances of responsibility for following SACS requirements. c. A letter from the Dean of the College of Education outlining their administrative and financial support for the instruction. The remaining step according to the Senate procedures is the approval of the Undergraduate Council.   Final notes of emphasis:  The “UK” prefix allows for faculty to propose a university wide course to be offered through Undergraduate Education. Approval requires vetting by the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education. Nonetheless, we have made sure that this dual credit agreement, which originated in the College of Education, has been approved through that college.  The dual credit offering is a college readiness course, a vital part of the curriculum of the STEAM Academy. The Academy plans to create other, discipline-specific dual credit offerings for students in upper high school grades. The course proposed here prepares students for the expectations of college-level work and orients them to the services on the UK campus.  The precedent for offering a university-orientation/college readiness course through Undergraduate Studies has been established through the regular scheduling of UK 101 and UK 201 through this unit.  The particular course number UK 11o is variable title and experimental. It can be offered only twice before a permanent number is created. Our plan is to create such a number if this offering proves successful.

  • 2 Grading Criteria and Assignments Grades for UK 110 will be assigned based upon assignment points and attendance points. Assignments Points Possible UK Fusion 25 Common Reading Experience 3-Page Paper (or project) 100 5 Library Tutorials and Quizzes 25 Mid-Term Grade Assignment 25 Cultural Event Attendance 20 Lecture Attendance 20 UK Leaders Panel Discussion 20 Study Strategies Assignments Weekly Time Plan 20 Time-Tracking Assignment 20 Class Note-taking and reworking assignment 20 Reflection Entry – About Me and Why College 15 Reflection Entry – How Is It Going? 15 Sketchpad Assignment 20 Professor Interview 25 TOTAL 370 Attendance Points Attendance will be tracked by an attendance question asked during each class session. Points will be awarded or deducted according to the following point scale: -If you answer the question correctly, you will receive +1 bonus point. -If you answer the question incorrectly, you will not be penalized. -If you are absent, without an excused absence, your overall point total will be deducted by 10 points. Late Assignments Assignments turned in late, without an excused absence, will receive a maximum of 50% credit. Grading Scale A 90% and higher B 89 – 80% C 79 – 70% D 69 – 60% E 59% and below Mid-term Grade Mid-term grades will be posted in myUK by the deadline established in the Academic Calendar (http://www.uky.edu/registrar/registrar-academic-calendar). Final Exam There is not a final exam. Attendance Policy Students are expected to attend ALL class sessions unless their absence is excused. Attending class is an important part of succeeding in any course, especially a discussion-based course like UK 110. Excused Absences Students need to notify the professor of absences prior to class when possible. S.R. 5.2.4.2 defines the following as acceptable reasons for excused absences: (a) serious illness, (b) illness or death of family member, (c) University-related trips, (d) major religious holidays, and (e) other circumstances found by the professor to fit “reasonable cause for nonattendance.” Students anticipating an absence for a major religious holiday are responsible for notifying the instructor
  • 3 in writing of anticipated absences due to their observance of such holidays no later than the last day in the semester to add a class. Information regarding dates of major religious holidays may be obtained through the religious liaison, Mr. Jake Karnes (859-257-2754). Students are expected to withdraw from the class if more than 20% of the classes scheduled for the semester are missed (excused or unexcused) per University policy. Verification of Absences Students may be asked to verify their absences in order for them to be considered excused. Senate Rule 5.2.4.2 states that faculty have the right to request “appropriate verification” when students claim an excused absence because of illness or death in the family. Appropriate notification of absences due to University-related trips is required prior to the absence. Academic Integrity Per University policy, students shall not plagiarize, cheat, or falsify or misuse academic records. Students are expected to adhere to University policy on cheating and plagiarism in all courses. The minimum penalty for a first offense is a zero on the assignment on which the offense occurred. If the offense is considered severe or the student has other academic offenses on his or her record, more serious penalties, up to suspension from the University, may be imposed. Plagiarism and cheating are serious breaches of academic conduct. Each student is advised to become familiar with the various forms of academic dishonesty as explained in the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Complete information can be found at the following website: http://www.uky.edu/Ombud. A plea of ignorance is not acceptable as a defense against the charge of academic dishonesty. It is important that you review this information as all ideas borrowed from others need to be properly credited. Part II of Student Rights and Responsibilities (http://www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/Code/part2.html) states that all academic work, written or otherwise, submitted by students to their instructors or other academic supervisors, is expected to be the result of their own thought, research, or self-expression. In cases where students feel unsure about the question of plagiarism involving their own work, they are obliged to consult their instructors on the matter before submission. When students submit work purporting to be their own, but which in any way borrows ideas, organization, wording or anything else from another source without appropriate acknowledgement of the fact, the students are guilty of plagiarism. Plagiarism includes reproducing someone else’s work, whether it be a published article, chapter of a book, a paper from a friend or some file, or something similar to this. Plagiarism also includes the practice of employing or allowing another person to alter or revise the work which a student submits as his/her own, whoever that other person may be. Students may discuss assignments among themselves or with an instructor or tutor, but when the actual work is done, it must be done by the student, and the student alone. When a student’s assignment involves research in outside sources of information, the student must carefully acknowledge exactly what, where and how he/she employed them. If the words of someone else are used, the student must put quotation marks around the passage in question and add an appropriate indication of its origin. Making simple changes while leaving the organization, content and phraseology intact is plagiaristic. However, nothing in these Rules shall apply to those ideas which are so generally and freely circulated as to be a part of the public domain (Section 6.3.1). Please note: Any assignment you turn in may be submitted to an electronic database to check for plagiarism. Accommodations Due to Disability If you have a documented disability that requires academic accommodations, please see me as soon as possible. To receive accommodations in this course, you must provide me with a Letter of Accommodation from the Disability Resource Center (Room 2, Alumni Gym, 257-2754, jkarnes@email.uky.edu) for coordination of campus disability services available to students with disabilities.

Recommended Assignments for Study Strategies Before Time Management/Goal Setting session, assign: Go through your syllabi and transfer all exam dates and major assignment dates into electronic or paper academic calendar/planner. Bring calendar/planner to class and show peer instructor.
  • 7 Using your weekly time plan form, keep track of how you spend your time for two days. Include time spent on class, study, job, meals, exercise, sleep, social media, electronic games, etc. After Note Taking session, assign: Using one of the methods discussed in class, rework your notes from each of your courses. Bring reworked notes to next class to show us. 10. Recommended Reflection Questions Instructors may choose a few reflection questions. Examples follow: Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, interests, etc.). The following is a good reflection question to ask after the goal setting/time management session: Why did you decide to attend the STEAM Academy? Why is a university education important to you? Looking back over the past few weeks, how has your experience at UK fit with your expectations of college? What has been your biggest adjustment? What have been some of the difficulties? Interview a university professor in person (not through email) during office hours and write about the experience. Some sample questions you could ask in your interview are: a. Where did you attend school for your graduate work? b. How long have you been a professor at UK? c. What is your area of academic expertise? d. How many classes do you teach each year? e. What is your favorite class to teach? f. Other than the time you spend in the classroom, what do you do as a professor? h. What hobbies or activities do you enjoy? i. What one piece of advice would you give to a first-year student? 11. Sketchpad Students will maintain a digital or physical sketchpad in which he/she documents a creative analysis of experiences related to the UK110 course and their involvement with the UK campus community. Sketchpads will be shared on a weekly basis to stimulate conversations related to campus experiences.

  • June 19, 2013 Undergraduate Council University of Kentucky Lexington, KY RE: Proposed Dual Credit Partnership with Fayette County Public Schools I appreciate the opportunity for the Department of Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) to work closely with Fayette County Public Schools (FCPS) in developing a dual credit offering at the University of Kentucky. We are very committed to ensuring student success as they leave the high school setting and enter UK and this course will help in that transition. In developing this offering, faculty in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction will ensure that SACs criteria are met on all facets of this implementation. C&I faculty will orient, manage, and assess all instructors for this introductory course. Faculty will receive in-load credit for their work in this process. We appreciate this opportunity to work closely with our P-12 colleagues towards improving the educational success of all of our students. Sincerely, Parker C. Fawson, Chair Department of Curriculum and Instruction College of Education University of Kentucky
