General Education at UAA - The current (9/01) situation.
The UABGES has been charged with analyzing the UAA GER. Specifically, in terms of process and product, the charge is
- to address the issues raised in the report of the accreditation evaluation committee and to apply the principles of Accreditation Policy 2.1 on General Education and related Instruction.
- to seek input "from the faculty, administrative staff, and other stakeholders throughout UAA."
- (to) prepare a proposal to address the weaknesses identified by (UABGES) and the evaluation committee. This document should contain a step-by-step action plan for implementation. It should also contain a statement of general education outcomes and a plan for assessing them.
- (to) report this project to the UAB for action no later than 1 March 2002.
The Commission on Colleges has charged UAA with delivering a progress report in this area in Fall of 2002.
How may we best summarize the "weaknesses identified by the evaluation committee?" Here, of course, the word 'best' is very much in play.
What, if any, additional "weaknesses" has the UABGES identified? This question should be distinguished from "what ideal features does the current GER lack?" The addressing of this latter question might be part of the "action plan" UABGES has been charged to devise.
