3:15-3:30 Discussion: Michael Denny (Music faculty) would like to discuss course enrollment caps and a possible Heritage Course designation. (View discussion document.) Seeking support for this classification of courses that have been taught face-to-face for 15 years. Eliminate class minimum so those who wish face-to-face vs online can have this choice. Committee generally supported this idea and recommended the discussion be taken to other groups on campus.
