What does the CFT do?
Members of the CFT assist faculty members in developing their curriculum projects:
· Create new programs
· Revise existing programs
· Create new courses
· Revise existing courses
How does the process begin?
The curriculum development process often begins with a faculty member, department, department head, program coordinator or dean who recognizes the need to revise an existing course or program or create a new one.
The office of Curriculum Development gets involved once the dean approves the project. The CFT coordinator will assign a team member to work with you. That facilitator will then contact you to learn the pace and magnitude of your project and what assistance you would like as you undertake your project.
