Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee
Date of First Reading: February 1, 2021
Date of Second Reading: March 1, 2021
Title of Motion: Request from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – School of International Letters and Cultures – to change the academic organization code – of a Graduate Certificate in Assisted Language Learning – From: CLANLIT (School of International Letters and Cultures) – To: CENGLISH (Department of English)
Action Requested: This curricular proposal has received all college, school, unit and university administrative approvals, and is being presented to the Senate for review and voting decision.
Rationale: The graduate certificate in Computer-Assisted Language Learning was developed jointly by one English faculty (Dr. Bryan Smith) and one School of International Letters and Cultures faculty (Dr. Andrew Ross). At present, Dr. Smith (English) is the College's only Computer-Assisted Language Learning expert and is now the sole director of the certificate. The Department of English has much improved computer facilities since their move two years ago. The move to English would better suit our students.
