I. COURSE CHANGES

Cultural Studies

ADD NEW COURSE

200 Survey of International Education (3) A Study of selected nations, their cultures, and their educational systems,
focusing on cross-cultural interpretation and the treatment of common problems and themes within diverse educational
institutions.

SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Rationale: This new proposed course is an effort on the Cultural Studies in Education program’s part to present a course
that should be available at the undergraduate level for students interested in international/comparative education. The
course supports the university’s “Ready for the World” initiative and will introduce students to the possibility of further
studying international education. This course also supports the university’s general education requirement, both in terms
of building students’ basic skills (communicating through writing) as well as developing broadened perspectives. Students
at the University of Tennessee need to have the opportunity to be aware of diverse educational systems at an
international level within the field of education. Course format and location: The course follows a standard format, and
would be offered on campus in the Claxton or Bailey Education Building, if room is available. Impact on other units: There
is no other comparative course on international education currently offered at the undergraduate level at the University of
Tennessee. Financial impact: There is no impact, it should not be in competition with any other courses and the required
graduate teaching associates needed to teach the course are already enrolled in the Cultural Studies in Education
program. These GTA’s use to teach CSE 400, “Teachers, Schools and Society,” which is no longer in high demand since
the course has been dropped from the Teacher Education program’s required course list. GTA’s will have master’s
degrees in education and be actively enrolled in the Cultural Studies doctoral program in order to teach this course. They
will be supervised by a faculty member of the Cultural Studies in Education program.


300 Social Justice, Education and Service Learning (3) A study of selected concepts, theories and policies related to
social justice within the American education system.
Recommended Background: English 101 and 102 or equivalent.

SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Rationale: To support the intercultural mission of the college and the university’s Quality Enhancement Plan. To augment
available course offerings in the Cultural Studies in Education concentration. To promote the social, cultural and
educational development of civically engaged students. Course format and locations: An on-campus portion of a regular
load of undergraduate coursework. Impact on other units: An expansion of course offerings in the Cultural Studies in
Education Foundations area. Financial impact: A portion of a regular faculty teaching load.


REVISE DESCRIPTION-Primary Cross-listed Course.

560 Fundamentals of qualitative methods. Overview of various qualitative approaches, data collection and analysis
methods. Focus on skill development for data collection through interviews, observation, and document analysis, as well
as the importance of reflexivity as a qualitative researcher.
Formerly: Fundamentals of qualitative research and development of skills needed for qualitative research proposals.
Overview of qualitative methods: ethnography, case study, historiography, biography, oral and life history. Critical reading
and evaluation of qualitative research studies.

SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Rationale: The course description is being changed to accurately reflect what is taught in this course. The description has
not been changed since Dr. Anders and Dr. Paulus began teaching this course. Course format and location: It is taught
during the fall and spring semesters once a week for three hours. Impact on other units: This course is cross listed with
Educational Psychology 555. It is a required course for the graduate certificate in qualitative research methods in
education. Financial impact: None

Under Qualitative Research Methods in Education Graduate Certificate of the 2010-2011 Graduate Catalog revise the
description and number of hours of the concentration core.
From:

The 12-hour graduate certificate in qualitative research methods in education is an interdepartmental program of study
that is administered by faculty within the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling. The certificate is
intended for currently admitted graduate students wishing to develop their skills in conducting qualitative research studies.
Certificate candidates must currently be admitted to a graduate program at the university or hold a terminal research
degree.

Requirements

CSE 560

At least one of the following: CSE 661 , CFS 650 , EDAM 618 .

At least two of the following: EDAM 617 , CSE 660 , CSE 625 , CSE 526 .
Other courses within the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences may, where appropriate, be substituted for
the courses listed above with the permission of the program coordinator.

To:

The 15-hour graduate certificate in qualitative research methods in education is an interdepartmental program of study
that is administered by faculty within the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling. The certificate is
intended for currently admitted graduate students wishing to develop their skills in conducting qualitative research studies.
Certificate candidates must currently be admitted to a graduate program at the university or hold a terminal research
degree and be admitted to the graduate school.

Requirements

CSE 560/EP 555
At least one of the following: CSE/EP 661 , CFS 650 , EDAM 618 .
At least three of the following: EDPY 631 , EDAM 617/HEA617 , CSE 660, CSE 526.
Attainment of a 3.5 grade point average in the certificate coursework.

Other courses may, where appropriate, be substituted for the courses listed above with permission of the program
coordinator.

SUPPORTING INFORMATION

Rationale: We are increasing the number of hours from 12 to 15 to provide the depth and breadth of knowledge and skills
required for students to successfully undertake qualitative research studies. We are changing coursework requirements to
be consistent with current course offerings. We are requiring achievement of a 3.5 grade point average and a capstone
project to demonstrate their mastery of these skills. Due to the increase of hours required, we are also allowing students
to petition for coursework taken outside of our College to apply to the certificate.

Impact: There is no impact.

Financial impact: No financial impact as no program is being added.

Under Learning environments and educational Studies in the 2010-2011 Graduate Catalog add paragraph and link.

From:

Education                                 PhD
 Learning environments and educational studies

To:

Education                                      PhD
 The LEEDS doctoral program explicitly links the fields of cultural studies, human learning and development from an applied
educational psychology perspective, and instructional technology to prepare graduates to work in high level professional careers in a
wide range of settings such as higher education, K-12 education, community-based agencies and community-based participatory
research, research institutions and other applied educational, social and political settings. The mission of the doctoral program in
Learning Environments and Educational Studies (LEEDS) in the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling is to ground
students in theoretical, philosophical and research foundations of human learning and development, cultural and social contexts of
educational environments (both formal and informal), the design process of technology-supported learning environments, and skills
for inquiring into and critiquing these environments.

Rationale: We are adding introductory text describing the program and providing a link to our Website. We are renaming
the core elements of the curriculum for clarity. We are eliminating the note directing students to consult with their advisor,
as this seems unnecessary to include in the catalog. We are not specifying exact courses for the foundations and
concentration core requirements, rather we will advise students of their options for coursework in these areas. This will
allow greater flexibility to students completing the program.

Impact: There is no impact on other academic units

Financial Impact: None
