New Scheduling Modules

In December 2019, the Academic Senate approved a new set of course scheduling modules to be implemented for Fall 2020. These modules offer maximum flexibility for faculty and academic departments while providing students with a standardized set of meeting times and at least 10 minutes to move between classes with greater ease. The new modules have been designed to have minimal impact to faculty in terms of pedagogy, course enrollment targets, and course meeting patterns. All courses will now start on the hour or half hour.

These modules were designed in a collaborative and consultative manner as a partnership between APARC and the Office of the Provost. APARC consulted with Deans, Department Chairs, and faculty in a variety of departments and was presented at the Academic Senate in several phases of development. The new scheduling modules will lead to better course planning and will better address student demand.
