Courses/ Issues – Flexible Core

  • 1) Does any of the colleges already has a formalized agreement, e.g. passed faculty senate or College Pathways Committee?
    2) If you have 4+ credit FL GEN ED classes how are you approaching the issue?
    Some colleges are exploring a 3 credit/ 4 hour model other are exploring 3 credits instructional time with 2 hours recitation/ 2 hours LAB.
    3) What courses are you sending to the flexible core?
    4) Are the colleges limiting the number of courses you can send?
    5) Are you facing opposition from other disciplines/areas, e.g. cultural diversity courses?
    6) What is your timeline to submit the courses?
