̃ Motion by Steve Coffman, seconded by Dan Yazak to approve Items 7 through 7.j on first reading.


Dean Mary Susan Fishbaugh, College of Education, stated that they have had a master’s program in curriculum and instruction K-8 for years, and over the years it became unmarketable as well as understaffed.  The College has piloted a “teaching as a second career” program using the M.Ed. Interdisciplinary Studies program and they are now moving that pilot program into the current M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction K-8 program.  The credits are changing, but the changes do balance out.


̃ Motion carried.


Item 14  MEd Interdisciplinary Studies Option:  Teacher Licensure Program of Study.  Delete program/plan of study.

Item 14.a  MEd Curriculum and Instruction (K-8) Option.  Modification of an existing program, including degree name change to MEd Curriculum and Instruction Licensure Option.


̃ Motion by Dan Yazak, seconded by Mark Hardt to approve Items 14 and 14.a on first reading.


̃ Motion carried.


Item 28  HHP 518 Health Enhancement Methods and Materials K-8.  Change credits from 4 to 2 and change course description.


̃ Motion by Mark Hardt, seconded by Dan Yazak to approve Item 28 on first reading.


Dean Fishbaugh noted that this credit change is to move the HHP course in line with the other courses in the program.  The question was raised regarding all these two-credit courses:  Do they not cater to a single population of students?  It was responded that advisors will still be able to substitute courses as necessary.


̃ Motion carried.


̃ Motion by Steve Coffman, seconded by Dan Yazak to waive second reading of Items 7 through 7.j, 14, 14.a, and 28.


̃ Motion carried.
