                     Time: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Place: District Office – Governing Board Room

District Curriculum Committee (DCC) Planning Meeting:

Time:            Immediately following Business Meeting
Place:           District Office, Governing Board Room

AGENDA:

Review and Discussion of VPAA proposal establishing MCCCD Shared Program Bank
                 Draft HLC Letter
A. Buehman – reviewed the first draft of the letter for HLC regarding program sharing and a shared program
bank. A. Buehman will work with Maria Harper-Marinick to send this letter to Sylvia Manning at the HLC.

                   Revised new program and program sharing flowcharts
A. Buehman – reviewed the process for new programs flowchart document. CCTA office will add numbers to all
of the boxes. The group was in agreement that some sort of “early alert lite” is needed (box#2). In the future
process only one college will have to fill out the “New or Shared Program Proposal”.
The group discussed when colleges would announce if they wanted to share a program and how the sharing
colleges will be agreed on.
A. Buehman – we will continue to review the process and find a balance of having internal discussion without
shutting out those who have done viable analysis. We will have to define what that means beyond the 29
questions. We will work with R. Kimmens’ office to include some metrics information.

                    Address impacts of proposed process on “program additions”
A. Buehman – reviewed the process sharing flowchart for existing programs that colleges want to opt into.
The group discussed if approval was needed to share an existing program and what the process would be for a
college to begin sharing a program that was already approved.
A. Buehman – the CCTA office will work with R. Kimmens and his office to develop/define a set a metrics for
both the new and existing program sharing process.
The group discussed the important for a dialogue between those colleges involved to take place and to include
the metrics, a mediator and possibly the person responsible for the final decision.
A. Buehman – DCC has to decide if we are going to continue to have an internal process to determine who can
share a program or should the HLC/DOE process determine who can share a program.
The group voted and was split 5 to 5 on continuing to internally decide who can share an existing program or
not.
A. Buehman –this will be going back to the Occupational Administrators for discussion and voting.
A. Buehman – when we come back in February we will bring metrics.
B. Celis – some of the programs in process now will be ready in February, maybe we can see what they would
look like in the new format

Discussion of Internet/Hybrid Definitions and Usage
W. Gueriero – provided the group with some background to the group on Internet/Hybrid Definitions from a
discussion by several schedulers on tags that they have been assigning to courses to define a course as in-
person, on-campus, internet, online or hybrid. There is concern over mandatory meetings, conferences,
orientations or testing for online or internet courses. Four reasons we should be talking about this: seamless
student experience (One Maricopa) – one registration that is portable to all the colleges, compliance disclosure
misrepresentation or truth in advertising, as of July 1 Maricopa has a separate category of tuition for distance
learning students who are out of state, prep time and loading for residential faculty teaching online courses.
W. Gueriero – asked the colleges how they defined online vs. in- person course and received thirteen pages of
responses.
A. Buehman –the critical question is where should this discussion take place? We should consistently define
courses district wide as well as on each campus.
W. Gueriero – the real question is should a course be defined as internet or online if a student has to go to
campus?
A. Buehman – we will refer this to the Vice Presidents of Academic Affairs for further analysis.


                                                                                                                   15
              DISTRICT CURRICULUM COMMITTEE (DCC) GENERAL MEETING
                       December 5, 2011 – Summary of Committee Action
                          Time: 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Place: District Office – Governing Board Room

     Discussion of MCCCD Program Completion Data
     A. Buehman – provided an overview of the program completion data to the group. Each college will receive
     college specific data for their college on December 16th. There will be a small discrepancy in the data because
     one set is looking only at current programs, while the other data will include students completing older
     programs that are no longer current. A very small number of AAS and CCLs are responsible for a majority of
     the program completers – 45% of the programs have 0 or 1 completers.
     Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick talked about the completion agenda and as we become more accountable for the
     number of completers and how important it is for us to be able to understand the data so we can make decisions.
     As resources become more difficult to obtain can we continue to offer all the programs we are currently? This
     data should help you to make decisions. Please share this information with your college administrators and
     presidents.
     A. Buehman – we will attempt to get some trend data for multiple years on program completion numbers.
     Looking at the last 4 years there has not been any real change in the data.
     Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick – this data may provide colleges with a marketing opportunity for shared programs.
     Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick – if the traditional completion metrics do not reflect what is really happening with
     our programs help us understand what does. In two to three years universities in Arizona could be facing
     performance based funding and eventually this will also impact Maricopa. We have to be able access and
     report on the correct data to show that we are successful.

     B. Tippett - suggested that the colleges report back to DCC in February on what their college conversations
     were after looking at the college specific numbers and what is the college plan of action.
     Dr. Maria Harper-Marinick – what do we need to know to assist and help with the data collection and
     reporting that is appropriate?
     A. Buehman – we will be sending out drill down information to the instructional councils when it is available.
     We will bring back a report at the next meeting instead of copying everyone on the individual reports.

A. Buehman - Meeting Adjourned.
