Senate Motion #2014-04

Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee, Eduardo Pagan, Chair
Date of First Reading: September 9, 2013
Date of Second Reading: October 7, 2013
Title of Motion: Request from the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College – Division of Educational Leadership  and Innovation -  for the name change of a graduate degree -  from:  MA in Educational Psychology – to: MA in Learning Sciences

Action Requested: The Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee recommends University Senate approval of a proposal submitted by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College – Division of Educational Leadership and Innovation – for the for the name change of a graduate certificate
From: Institutional Research – To: Institutional Research and Policy Analysis

Rationale: This certificate has been closed for a long time and we would like to revive the program and create a K-12 policy back within the certificate instead of two tracks in higher education that would target students that are working in school districts that may already have a Master’s degree, but need training in applied data analysis that would allow them to transition into data analyst positions within their districts. We believe this program will serve an important need because of the increased emphasis on data-driven decision making in K-12 education. This program will be available to all students.
