According to core curriculum director Andrew Guest, University faculty and staff are approaching that most magical of fall holidays: Deadline day for course title and description changes in the 2021-2022 University Bulletin (aka, November 6).
The best titles and descriptions are actually more than just titles and descriptions. They reflect the ideas students will engage, and offer coherence across a curriculum. This takes on some extra significance this year as UP starts the process of revitalizing the Core Curriculum. We’re hoping some Core course titles and descriptions can be updated to reflect the evolving underlying ideas and learning that happens in Core classes, and offer some thoughts at this link to the Core Matters portion of the Teaching & Learning Community Blog on the general endeavor of making titles and descriptions less “content-centered” and more “learning-centered.”
