         Continue working with faculty one-on-one in doing course assessment
         Initiate an electronic drop box of learning activities that illustrate core competencies and
     learning outcomes

3. Please provide any specific data or metric that demonstrates progress towards your goal or
strategy over past semester.

        The on-going workshop activity and presentations conducted by the Team have raised
        the awareness level of the entire Miramar College community of the concept of learning
        outcomes and their significance in student success. These activities have also better
        prepared Miramar faculty, staff, and administrators as it gears up to complete its
        Accreditation Self-Study for its upcoming site visit in Spring 2004. Faculty and staff have
        volunteered to serve on the Standards Two Committee that will specifically respond to
        and focus on student learning outcomes and individual faculty are asking for information
        through FLEX activities. While the process has been very slow, the Team continues to
        disseminate information and to respond to questions and concerns regarding measuring
        and documenting learning outcomes.
Goal 1:             Focus Efforts on Student Learning and Student Success

Strategy 2:         Offer Interdisciplinary Learning Opportunities

Orchestrators:      Judy Baker, Linda Lee and Daphne Figueroa



1.     Please describe, in bullet form, what has been accomplished related to the strategy and
action steps included in the plan from July 1, 2002 –June 30, 2003.

       A Teaching Academy was established to address faculty development and training needs
   in terms of learning communities and interdisciplinary learning opportunities among other
   teaching strategies.
       A Teaching Academy website was developed and posted.
       The Teaching Academy committee met once to plan for implementation and use of the
   Professional Development Center in T102.
       An online tool was set up to facilitate ongoing dialogue by faculty about the teaching
   process:
       Teaching Academy Discussion Forum
    http://www.smartgroups.com/groups/miramarpdc
    During February 2003, Mary Benard attempted to recruit a faculty member to establish
       and lead a “Learning Communities Task Force” at Miramar. The Task Force purpose was
       to develop a learning community model to be used in developing future programs at
       Miramar College. However, the effort failed due to lack funding and interest on the part of
       the faculty. The grant Miramar College submitted was approved but not funded. Faculty
       response to this solicitation of interest was very limited. Leslie Klipper was interested, but
       was unavailable due to her full load.
    Meetings of the Orchestrators held on February 24, 2003 and March 17, 2003. Minutes
       are available upon request.
    Committee Recommendation developed:
           o In order to fulfill the Strategic Plan to focus efforts on student learning and success
               by offering interdisciplinary opportunities, the Interdisciplinary Committee
               recommends that Miramar increase the number of courses and programs that
               include interdisciplinary content such as:
           o Linked courses
                    Learning communities
                    Peer-led team learning
                    Team teaching
                    Special topics to supplement core courses
    Committee Recommendation sent to college deans for their consideration at March 31,
       2003 Dean’s Meeting. The Committee requested guidance and formal support from
       Miramar’s managers for the Committee to proceed with addressing the recommendation
       (e.g., conduct a campus-wide needs assessment, conduct a pilot, schedule FLEX
      training), The deans responded that they support any efforts of the Committee to promote
      interdisciplinary studies as the budget cuts are taken into consideration. No new funds
      are available for such an effort at this time.

2. Please indicate what your group plans to accomplish over the spring semester.
      In fall 2003, the Committee will contact those expressing interest including: Leslie Klipper,
   Larry Pink, Dan Willkie, Carol Murphy.

3. Please provide any specific data or metric that demonstrates progress towards your goal or
strategy over past semester.

In fall 2002, one course was taught that included team teaching: Lisa Brewster and Dan Wilke
     On May 4, 2003, the Committee emailed a request to all Miramar College faculty and
         deans for this information. The Dean of the School of Business, Math and Science replied
         that there were none in her school. No other responses were received.

    sufficient financial resources, adequate planning, timing, and getting more faculty, staff,
