1. Introduction and Purpose
Course outlines support the learning process by identifying course learning requirements, learning activities and learning resources, as well as the evaluation framework planned to assess student achievement.
This policy applies to all credit level courses offered by Loyalist College
3. Policy Statement
Faculty will provide every student with an approved course outline which will be reviewed by the faculty and students during the first week of class.
Course outlines are to be provided in electronic format via the College’s learning management system (LMS).
The course outline must reflect the curriculum as influenced by program outcomes, published standards and existing curriculum maps. Review and subsequent modification to the curriculum on the course outline should occur in collaboration with the program faculty team to ensure curriculum continuity and alignment across the program.
At least one month prior to the commencement of the course, faculty members will review and make appropriate revisions to all course outlines. The revisions will be reviewed by the program coordinator and approved by the designated academic administrator.
Approved course outlines will be accessible to prospective students, PLAR candidates, and other members of the college community, upon request.
