III Old Business

A. Institutional Committee on Distance Education (3:05-3:20) ACTION ITEM

Response to Accreditation Recommendation #4

This is a second reading and we should vote on this.

Should I ask for info on the new criteria for DE courses? Or is this solely a CAC issue?

Continuing problem with rolling over courses on iLearn/MPC-online.

Older report on responding to the ACCJC distance education recommendations, from our Dec 2, 2010 meeting:


IV New Business


A. Review of Bylaws and General Procedures (3:20-3:30)

This is mostly for our many new members.

Should the COC be more "active" in recruiting committee members, like for the College Council?


B. Goals and Objectives for the 2011-2012 Academic Year (3:30-4:05)

Examples of what we've done in the past:

2010-2011 Goals and Objectives

2009-2010 Goals and Objectives

I'd like to assign names and responsibilities to each of the goals

See Notes for just a few ideas to get us going


C. Subcommittees or "Point People" (4:05-4:15)

I believe we have the flex committee established.

We need a board policy "point person"

Mila MacBain and Susan Walter filled this role so admirably last year.
