  3. KSCM DE Questions – Pete Gross
    1. Pete discussed with the EMC about the DE questions in KSCM. Pete and the EMC collaborated and proposed the following new questions to replace the existing DE ones:
      1. Does this course have regular and substantive interaction between instructor and student? Yes / No / Course not offered as DE. (A “no” response pops up with a box to submit a reason why not.)
      2. Does this course have regular and substantive interaction between students? Yes / No / Course not offered as DE. (A “no” response pops up with a box to submit a reason why not.)
      3. Distance Education courses will be designed according to the Leeward CC DE Guidelines. Yes / No / Course not offered as DE. (A “no” response pops up with a box to submit a reason why not.)
    2. DE Committee vote: unanimous in favor of the new DE questions.
  4. Subcommittee discussion to establish task-oriented sub-committees
    1. Faculty Evaluation Committee – implement survey, analyze data, identify needs of DE faculty (Members: Rachael*, Karim, Matt)
    2. IOTA Committee – review award applicants (March/April), revise rubric to add more innovative aspects and align with DE Guidelines? (Members: Camden, Sandro*, Warren)
    3. DE Liaison Committee – division-specific DE liaison program to help DE faculty, how to get the word out (Members: Michelle*, Kuuipo, Christy)
    4. Warren to reach out to LeeAnne, Brent, and Annemarie to choose a sub-committee.
    5. Sub-committee chairs will organize sub-committee meetings to work on tasks and report back to the committee.
  5. New DE Guidelines Discussion
    1. The DE Committee is in favor of the new proposed DE Guidelines (draft). There are two sets – Course Design and Course Delivery.
    2. Scores column has been removed so that it’s not used as an evaluative tool, but as a self-assessment tool.
    3. Possible idea: Create an online form of the DE Guidelines with spaces for open-ended responses for each standard.
    4. Possible idea: The DE Committee (with help from the EMC) will create and facilitate a workshop to inform DE faculty how to use the DE Guidelines and help them to self-assess their courses using the DE Guidelines and help to recommend changes to meet the criteria, if needed. DE faculty will submit their self-eval to their Division Chair for review before they get “approved” to be scheduled to teach online courses. QM faculty and DE Liaisons can also be possible facilitators to help.
    5. DE Guidelines Course Design review every three years. Possible idea: Fast-track workshop for changes/improvements.
    6. The DE Committee is also in favor of the DE Guidelines Course Delivery standards to be used as the (recommended) peer evaluation items.
  6. Next meeting will be on November 5, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
  7. Meeting was adjourned at 4:25 p.m.
