  Course Modifications:




 Course Inactivations:




4. Should this course be offered in a distance learning or other unique instructional format. (please specify which
   format)? Why or why not? No. Explain.

   This should only be taught in the traditional class/studio setting. The reason for this is that it
   is a studio art course that requires much direct communication and hands on experience.




5. Include appropriate background information. The following questions are information to include in your
   response. Is this a state requirement? What is the requirement and why must we implement it? Has history
   shown students need this course/program for some reason? Will this meet some specific workforce, university
   transfer or student success need? Are there partners, grant requirements, faculty collaborations or other
   reasons leading to the development of this course/program?


   The main reason for this new course is to respond to the constantly changing trends in
   photography. As professional level digital cameras (DSLRs) become more available and
   affordable, there is a demand in the community to learn how to apply the principles of
   photography in the digital realm.




                                                   3
                                                                                                     Form 1, Page 4

6. Write a rationale/need for the above action(s). This response should address the following questions. Is there
   a need for this course/program in our service district? How will this impact student success for upper division
   instruction or job placement? If the College already has a similar course/program, why are we developing this
   program/course and what are the differences between the programs and courses? How many students and
   what businesses or transfer institutions will benefit? Does this course/program support a College goal or
   initiative?


   This course will provide an option for the growing demand to learn digital photography.
   Professional level digital cameras (DSLRs) are becoming more affordable which makes serious
   digital photography more possible to an ever-growing audience. There is not currently a
   photography (PGY) course that is based on the use of a digital camera or the computer as a
   digital darkroom. Also, it will help students in job placement since it will further their
   photographic knowledge and skills.

7. Programs, articulated agreements, or courses affected by this proposal:

           a.   Identify other existing programs of study or courses that this proposal will affect, and explain how
                they will be affected. (Program title, program code, required or elective)

                None

           b. If there are existing internal or external (inter-institutional) articulation agreements that will be
              impacted by this proposal request, please contact as appropriate: No



                      Courses intended for transfer and External Upper division articulations (2+2): Lynne Crosby,
                       lcrosby@fccj.edu : 632-5066
                      Internal articulations(i.e. workforce credit certificate programs to a college credit
                       program): Deborah Morris, dmorris@fccj.edu : 633-5909
                      Tech Prep (High School) articulations: Debbie Berbig, dberbig@fccj.edu: 632-3277.

8. Fiscal Notes: This response must include specific information on the financial impact to students and the
   institution. This section should be concise, unless there are special circumstances related to the
   course/program. This section should address the following questions. Will there be unusual costs to students?
   Are faculty salaries to teach course/program higher or lower than standard rates? Will additional staff or
   faculty be required and if so, what are the costs to the institution? Will the institution have to purchase
   additional equipment, supplies, software, and/or materials not currently owned by the college? Are there grant
   or business partnerships that will provide funds to establish the course/program? Will business partnerships
   cover the course/program costs?

       There will be additional costs to the students that are common with a photography course
       such as purchase of a camera and print paper. Current college equipment and facilities
       should work adequately but possibly there will be a need to acquire a RAW file processing
       software before the Fall 2007 term.

9. Financial Information:
   Special fees: (Specify course prefix and number, amount per student, type of fee, justification, and
    estimated annual academic enrollment. Please be aware the fee must be uniquely related to this course only
    and the amount charged must not exceed the cost to the College. Contact Finance if you have any questions.)
      Standard lab fees will apply.

     package with the selection criteria will be provided by Curriculum Services).  NA
    (Place an "X" next to category).

11. Evaluation: This response requests specific information on how you will assess the effectiveness of the
    course/program as it benefits students and the college. This section is also concise but should address the
    following: credit transfer course: review of student enrollment, completion and grades, as well as students
    ability to move to higher level courses if applicable; credit or non-credit workforce: review of student
    enrollment, completion, job placement, as well as business involvement in development, revision and evaluation
    of the course/program and student success; and, adult education courses should include the same information
    as credit transfer courses but should also include job placement analysis.

This course will be evaluated by analyzing student enrollment figures and course completion rates.

12. Do you feel that this proposal will have any special impact on the recruitment and retention of disadvantaged
students? If so, please explain. No
