Upcoming Changes to Note

  • Moving to eLumen for Curriculum Management and Online Catalog
    • Courtney Loder has worked diligently this year to move all course and program curriculum outlines of record from pdf documents into eLumen for curriculum management. This information will populate an online catalog that will replace the current .pdf academic catalog. The online catalog should be easy for students and employees to navigate and search. A .pdf version of the catalog will still be made available for printing hard copies.
    • The Assessment Committee is also exploring the use of eLumen for SLO assessment reporting. Expect to be asked for input as they explore a new assessment platform. They are tentatively looking to pilot eLumen for assessment in spring 2020.
  • Moving to an Online Bookstore
    • The plan is still to have faculty place spring 2020 textbook adoptions using the new Barnes & Noble adoption tool next fall. A task force has been formed and will begin implementation very soon.
  • Pcounter used for Printing
    • The Pcounter system will be used this summer for faculty printing. Faculty will receive a Pcounter code to print. IT is almost ready to begin visiting Mac users to enable their computers to work with the Pcounter software.

ACCJC Conference

Arts and Humanities Division Dean George Potamianos and I presented at the ACCJC conference this week. We described the process CR used to develop our institutional self-evaluation. We received a lot of positive feedback – and not just about George’s knock-knock joke. Yes, he did a knock-knock joke with Commissioners in the room. But they were engaged and smiling, and I left feeling proud to be a part of College of the Redwoods.
