Curriculum training is ongoing across the college. As new programs emerge and/or new faculty come on board, the Faculty Resource Center staff works to share best practices and collaboratively develop curriculum that accurately reflects the expectations of the program and its courses through competencies, learning objectives, and student performance criteria. Collaboration with program faculty and academic administration is key to creating effective curriculum and instruction at Central Community College.

ASL Committee

Timeline Begin - Timeline End:

FA 2015 - SP 2020

Progress:

Notes:

The ASL committee had developed, revised, and improved a reporting system utilizing SharePoint and InfoPath. It was brought to the committee’s attention that the InfoPath portion of SharePoint was no longer going to be supported by Microsoft; without the InfoPath portion the reporting system would not be functional. The committee set a goal to find a new reporting system before the SharePoint system could no longer be used; the committee wanted to have a new system tested and in place before rolling it out to the general faculty. After exploring the availability and cost of other systems the decision was made to see if the assessment portion of the Worldwide Instructional Design System (WIDS) software that we already own, could be adapted to the use of the college. A pilot group was formed and utilized WIDS for a reporting period. The pilot group reported that while portions of the software worked very well, there were other portions that were not user friendly and did not accomplish what the ASL committee needed as far as collection and reporting. The WIDS software company was approached with the idea of developing a program within their software that would do what the college needed. WIDS developers worked with a group of ASL committee members to develop and test a reporting system. The new reporting program should be available to the college in November of 2017 and the committee will develop a system to introduce and train faculty on its use in 2018. The ASL committee is adopting a mentoring approach to assessment. This new focus will be reflected in the review groups that are used to evaluate program and Academic Education group reports. The review groups will be peer orientated – in the past the review groups were assembled to avoid a reviewer having a report from their own division or group to avoid conflicts of interest. Most faculty are familiar with the assessment process and it will be beneficial to have reviewers be from the same division to foster mentoring. The ASL Committee used this transitional time as an opportunity to move the college's ASL focus from report completion to a commitment to continuous improvement. An ASL sub-committee worked together to develop a new CCC ASL evaluation tool in the form of a rubric. The new rubric (adopted May 2018) evaluates a program's progress in two standards: 1-Teaching and Assessing for Learning and 2-Documenting and Using Results for Continuous Improvement. Programs receive feedback from their ASL sub-committee and a rating in each standard of either Advanced, Proficient, Progressing, or Beginning/Not Evident.

Student Planning allows students and advisors to identify planned, registered, and completed courses for all program at CCC. The first time a student meets with an advisor the degree plan is set up by semester. Once the plan is established, it is easy for students to register for the courses they need for their degree. Student Planning is part of our Student Information System and as soon as grades are posted by faculty, the grades are immediately viewable to the student in Student Planning. The system is very user friendly and students and advisors are very appreciative of this product. Currently this is not a requirement for advisers to use with their advisees. The college is working with Ellucian to determine reporting options from this tool. The college hopes to project future term course needs based off of utilization of this tool.

A meeting with South Heartland Department happened early on to determine the need for Community Health Workers and what type of partnership we could have.

Conversations were left with the intent to keep the topic and partnership open should more need arise between our two entities.

A meeting with Health and Human Services and CCC, Marcie Kemnitz, Ron Kluck, and Sarah Kort took place in April 2016. A partnership opportunity was discussed between the two entities to explore expanding the needs of training CHW's. At this point, HHS appears to be offering this training at no cost to participants across the service area through Every Woman Matters funding. They have the necessary space, curriculum, funding, and appropriate number of trainers/trainees needed to make the project successful. They also agreed to keep communication with CCC in case any partnership opportunities would arise in the future
