July agenda

  1. 1. July Agenda <br />The Academic Council <br />July 22, 2010<br />
  2. 2. 3 Agenda<br />Concern on prompt return of quizzes and exams <br />Proposal to move activity hour to 6-7 pm Wednesday effective next semester <br />Review on ticket purchase as an academic requirement <br />
  3. 3. Concern on prompt return of quizzes and exams <br />Context <br />CSG has been receiving complaints on teachers not returning quizzes and exams <br />This is essential for students to calibrate their performances and know their standing <br />Recommended Action<br />The Department Chairs through the Deans shall review teachers who do not return quizzes from the complaint lists from students. <br />
  4. 4. Activity Hour Reform <br />Context<br />Classes resume at 6:15 pm during Wednesdays cutting student’s participation in activities. <br />The CSG finds activity hour as an essential and integral time slot that facilitates extra-curricular formation work.<br />Masses are often times disturbed during activity hour (5:30-6:15) <br />Recommended Action <br />Explore the idea of extending Activity hour to 2 hours (benchmarking with other ateneos) <br />Move activity hour from 6:15-7:15 pm to move 6 pm classes to 5-6 slots which means a relatively large number of blocks having a free time 6:15 onwards. <br />
  5. 5. Review on ticket purchase as an academic requirement <br />CONTEXT<br />There are reports on departments requiring their students to purchase tickets. If they can’t purchase, they will get an INC. <br />The CSG finds it as an unfair practice since it’s a captured market and something close to coercion not considering the financial capacity of students. <br />Money is being handled by teachers themselves which might complicate the payment process <br />
  6. 6. Recommended Action <br />Set up a 3rd party (e.g. Dean’s Council) to approve a request from the department if such requirement arises with student representation <br />Or explicitly mention it in the course syllabus at the beginning of the year <br />Strictly follow that no teacher should hold any cash coming from the students <br />
