Meeting began at 2:45 p.m., in EP-BD 1-451, EpiCenter.
Motion to approve the minutes of the February 28, 2006 meeting was made by Gail
Lancaster and seconded by Jean Corey. Minutes were approved.
CMS Law Enforcement Certificate (CMSLAW-CT) and Corrections Certificate
(COR-CT): Motion to approve deletion of the programs was made by Dolores Teter and
seconded by Sharon Merrefield. These two certificates will be replaced by two new
PSAV programs that will become effective 20053(0365). This change is a result of new
state mandates requiring all certified criminal justice training centers in the state of
Florida be in compliance. Discussion was held and the proposal was accepted. Effective
date: 20053(0365).
CMS Law Enforcement AS Degree (CMSLAW-AS), Corrections AS Degree (COR-
AS), Crime Analysis AS Degree (CRAN-AS) and Computer Related Crime
Investigation AS Degree (CRCI-AS): Motion to approve deletion of the programs was
made by Bonnie Kesler and seconded by Joanne Kuzma. These programs will be
incorporated into a new Public Safety AS degree that will begin 20061 and will be
submitted to the next Curriculum and Instruction Committee meeting. Effective date:
20061(0370).
MGF 1108H Honors Mathematical Ideas and Explorations: Motion to approve
changes in description, major learning outcomes and course objectives was made by
Robert Raze and seconded by Gail Lancaster. The introduction of geometry will satisfy
the state of Florida and College of Education requirement that a geometry component
must be part of a required course for students interested in entering the education
program. The proposal was accepted as submitted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
ETI 1688C Network Cabling Fundamentals: Motion to approve changes in credits,
contact hours, major learning outcomes and course objectives was made by Jean Corey
and seconded by Jalika Waugh. This change is requested as a result of the elimination of
the two credit hour course in Ethics. The A.S. Degree in Telecommunications
Engineering Technology had required this two credit hour course in Ethics as part of the
general education requirement. Now that the Ethics is a three credit hour requirement, a
reduction in one the telecommunications courses was necessary to stay within the
program hours of 64 credits. ETI 1688C, Network Cabling Fundamentals will be reduced
from 3 to 2 credits and the contact hours will be reduced from 47 to 32. Major Learning
Outcome 5 and the supporting objectives will be eliminated from this course for the
reduction in credits and contact hours. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the
proposal was accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
Telecommunications Engineering Technology AS Degree (TELEC-AS): Motion to
approve change in the program was made by Donna Peters and seconded by Lolita
Brown. General Education credits are increased by one and Major Course credits
decreased by one. This change is requested as a result of the elimination of the two credit
hour course in Ethics. The A.S. Degree in Telecommunications Engineering Technology
had required this two credit hour course in Ethics as part of the general education
requirement. Now that the Ethics is a three credit hour requirement, a reduction in one the
telecommunications courses was necessary to stay within the program hours of 64
credits. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was accepted. Effective
date: 20061(0370).
DIG 2115C Digital Imaging: Motion to approve changes in prerequisite and course
objectives was made by Joanne Kuzma and seconded by Bonnie Kesler. The change to
the prerequisite of this course is based on the deletion of PGY 2401C from the revised
A.S. degree program in Graphic Design and addition of GRA 11XXC. Changes to the
Course Objectives Stated in Performance Terms reflect an update to current C&I
phraseology. Discussion was held, correction noted and the proposal was accepted.
Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 11XXC Principles of Graphic Design: Motion to approve new 2-credit course
was made by Gail Lancaster and seconded by John Crisp. This course replaces ART
1201C, Design 1, in both the A.S. Degree and Certificate of the Graphic Design Program.
The intention is to offer students specific principles, concepts and processes necessary in
the production of good graphic design. The student assignments will be primarily
computer generated, and incorporate a comprehensive foundation using elements of
design to give form to creative ideas particular to graphic design imagery. Discussion was
held, corrections noted and the proposal was accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 1104C Typography: Motion to approve change in pre and co-requisite was made
by Dolores Teter and seconded by Mark Lulek. The change to the prerequisite of this
course is based on the deletion of ART 1201C, Design 1, from the revised A.S. degree
program in Graphic Design. The co-requisite of GRA 11XXC, Principles of Graphic
Design, reinforces the basic computer skills that are essential to computer-generated
typography. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was accepted.
Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 2111C Graphic Design Seminar: Motion to approve changes in title,
prerequisites, description, major learning outcomes and course objectives was made by
Donna Peters and seconded by Tricia Gorham. The change to the prerequisites of this

course are based on the deletion of ART 2253C from the revised A.S. degree program in
Graphic Design, and the addition of GRA 11XXC, Principles of Graphic Design, that will
replace it. The change in title reveals the addition of a new class to the program – Graphic
Design II. The course description has been revised to reflect these alterations. Changes to
the Course Objectives Stated in Performance Terms reflect an update to current C&I
phraseology. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was accepted.
Effective date: 20061(0370). Title changes to Graphic Design I.
GRA 2203C Pre-Press Production: Motion to approve changes in course description,
major learning outcomes and course objectives was made by Jalika Waugh and seconded
by Sandy Lofstock. The changes indicated in the Description, Major Learning Outcomes
and Course Objectives Stated in Performance Terms represent an update to terminology
used in pre-press production relative to the increased use of computers in the printing and
graphic design field. This course review includes adjustments of format to be consistent
with other course outlines; consideration of multicultural dimensions of the courses,
improving the course to reflect the input and expertise of the content area faculty
members, improvements in wording to accommodate new instructional methodology, and
corrections of grammar. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was
accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 2951C Professional Practices/Internship: Motion to approve changes in credits,
prerequisite, contact hours, major learning outcomes and course objectives was made by
Tricia Gorham and seconded by Gail Lancaster. The reduction of credit hours from 3 to 2
and contact hours from 92 to 61 helps provide for the creation of new courses to be
offered in the Graphic Design Program and still keep within the required 64 credit hour
mandate. Experience in offering this course has indicated that the same Major Learning
Objectives can be realized by using more concise lecture material, a better defined text,
and an established bank of reliable companies for the internships, without sacrificing the
quality of instruction. This course review includes adjustments of format to be consistent
with other course outlines; consideration of multicultural dimensions of the courses,
improving the course to reflect the input and expertise of the content area faculty
members, improvements in wording to accommodate new instructional methodology, and
corrections of grammar. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was
accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 2952C Graphic Design Portfolio: Motion to approve changes in credit hours,
prerequisite and contact hours was made by Lolita Brown and seconded by Dolores
Teter. The reduction in credit and contact hours of this class is based on the revision to
the A.S. degree program in Graphic Design requiring that an additional hour be added to
the general educational ethics class. Of the graphic design classes offered, it was
determined that this was the best choice for modification. Since this is predominately a
studio class, the reduction in time should not affect the lecture portion of the instruction,
and open lab time is provided for students to continue refinement of their individual
portfolio projects. This course review includes adjustments of format to be consistent
with other course outlines; consideration of multicultural dimensions of the courses,
improving the course to reflect the input and expertise of the content area faculty
members, improvements in wording to accommodate new instructional methodology, and

corrections of grammar. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was
accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
PGY 2801 Digital Photography: Motion to approve change in course number and
prerequisite was made by Bonnie Kesler and seconded by Robert Raze. The change in
prerequisite insures that students taking this class will all have a complete understanding
and practice of digital manipulation software such as Adobe Photoshop. This will allow
the student to concentrate more on producing good digital photographic images and
spend less time on learning a computer application. The traditional silver-based PGY
2401C, Photography I, will no longer be required as part of the A.S. degree in Graphic
Design. This course review includes adjustments of format to be consistent with other
course outlines; consideration of multicultural dimensions of the courses, improving the
course to reflect the input and expertise of the content area faculty members,
improvements in wording to accommodate new instructional methodology, and
corrections of grammar. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was
accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370). Course number changes to 2801C.
GRA 2114C Graphic Design II: Motion to approve new 3-credit course was made by
Tricia Gorham and seconded by Mark Lulek. Graphic Design II is a more advanced
course, incorporating student assignments of greater complexity and depth. The major
projects will include the application of skills and techniques learned from previous
classes in design and specific computer applications. Integrated into this class will be
information from ART 2253C, Illustration, and GRA 2333C, Graphic Techniques and
Application, which are being dropped from the A.S. degree. Discussion was held,
correction noted and the proposal was accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
GRA 2131C Multimedia Graphics: Motion to approve new 3-credit course was made
by Donna Peters and seconded by John Crisp. The establishment of Multimedia Graphics
is a result of the need to consolidate the two tracks of Print and Multimedia into one
concise A.S. degree. Upon recommendation from the Graphic Design Advisory Board,
the information currently presented in CGS 2525, Introduction to Multimedia, CGS 2871,
Desktop Audio/Video Design, and GRA 2834 Multimedia Interface and Screen Design,
will be merged and refined to meet the specific needs of our graphic design graduates, as
industry requires that they know aspects of both print and screen design. In addition, the
single track should help maintain more consistent class offerings and enrollment of the
more advanced classes. Proposal was accepted as submitted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
Graphic Design Technology AS Degree (GRAPH-AS): Motion to approve changes in
program deleting options and changing courses offered was made by Gail Lancaster and
seconded by John Crisp. In 1999 the college established two tracks for the A.S. degree in
Graphic Design Technology, one for print and one for multimedia. At that time, the
purpose was to offer a greater selection of classes to accommodate the growing needs for
a computer-based design skill set and the traditional print oriented design. In the past six
years, advancements in the technology of both the hardware and software used by the
graphic design industry has not produced the need for a distinction between print and
multimedia, but rather melded them together. Increasingly, graphic designers are being
asked to provide the skills required to generate concepts and designs that will serve as a
good communication tool for both print, web, and hybrid portable document files. In
recent Graphic Design Advisory Board meetings, and at the last portfolio review in May

C & I Meeting Minutes                March 14, 2006                             Page 4 of 5
of 2005, concern was expressed that neither of the two separate tracks would continue to
adequately prepare students for the design challenges our graduates will encounter. It was
determined that a unified track reflected in the Graphic Design AS Degree and Desktop
Designer Certificate would best service the needs of our students, offering the entry
requirements of today’s designer market. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the
proposal was accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
Desktop Designer Certificate (DESK-CT): Motion to approve changes in program
courses was made by Gail Lancaster and seconded by Theresita Ortiz. It was determined
that a unified track reflected in the Graphic Design AS Degree and Desktop Designer
Certificate would best service the needs of our students, offering the entry requirements
of today’s designer market. Discussion was held, corrections noted and the proposal was
accepted. Effective date: 20061(0370).
Meeting ended at 3:30 p.m.
Next regular meeting is scheduled for March 28, 2006. It will be held electronically.
