Standard Submittal Process
What information is needed?
The Breadth Governance Board makes a certification decision based on the information you provide. We need either a full syllabus or a brief syllabus plus any additional supporting documentation.
In the context of your course, the document(s) should demonstrate how students learn the "thinking" and "doing" of the Way. Students should have significant experiences in actively analyzing, inquiring, reasoning, expressing, or engaging in the Way. The Way should be a major focus of the course, not a byproduct. Documentation is most helpful when it includes the following:
- outlines the major course elements (e.g., reading list, descriptions or representative examples of detailed assignments, projects, etc., grading criteria)
- shows evidence of active "thinking" and "doing" experience
- describes how the goals/experiences of the course connect with of one or more learning outcomes for the Way
Please review the Ways Guidelines webpage to find information about each Way and the specific questions to be addressed in the documentation, and the choices of learning outcomes associated with that Way.
When you are ready to submit the course, download the Course Submittal Instructions, and then go to the Ways Submission Portal. If you need assistance in submitting your course, please complete the Instructor Submission Form for your Way and give it to your department's undergraduate Student Services Officer/Administrator (SSO/SSA) or course administrator.
