I realize that there will be more in-person courses next fall, but given ongoing social distancing recommendations (and limited numbers of large classrooms) do we anticipate there still be more online courses (web or remote) than before COVID19?

I especially appreciate the additions under "Absences" part c. Thanks, Francis!

Jen Reynolds
01:08:01
I’m surprised to hear that this is a common practice at our comparator universities. I have never heard of this before.
Anthony Hornof
01:08:20
Frances, these are all good points regarding student privacy and power structure. It does seem to take a lot of the weight out of any kind of “mandadory first-day attendance” policy, such as what the Registrar has recently introduced.
Ron Bramhall
01:08:53
Beth - the incomplete policy could be used as one option when a student has missed enough class such that they then have a “minor yet essential requirement” that has not been completed.
Jen Reynolds
01:09:21
No absences is an acceptable policy?
Nico Larco
01:09:37
To clarify - if your policy is ‘no absences’, then you can have no exceptions (b/c that would lead to uneven use)
Nico Larco
01:09:59
Is this what is intended?
Samantha Hopkins (she, hers)
01:10:02
WRT the idea of "no absences," It can be allowable while also being rather a bad idea.
Anne "Michelle" Wood (she/hers)
01:10:03
Allowable.. maybe not advisable.
Jen Reynolds
01:10:27
“No absences” as a policy will fall disparately on students with different burdens.
Autumn Shafer
01:10:44
Just to clarify I allow absences and make ups, but I am representing the views of some other faculty who have strict attendance requirements in professional applications.
Spike Gildea (he him his)
01:10:57
Yes, that your policy does not depend on the “excuse” someone offers you — the policy is a “no excuses necessary” policy
Elliot Berkman (he/him/Ell)
01:11:02
Phillips Cronce then Koopman
Ron Bramhall
01:11:06
Anthony - the mandatory attendance policy has been changed to the “Mandatory first class attendance policy” where students who do not attend the first class can be dropped if they do not attend.
Ron Bramhall
01:12:12
Mandatory First day attendance has to be designated at the course level, not CRN level, by the department prior to class schedule being published.
Autumn Shafer
01:13:46
Athletic absences: Will we no longer need or be able to accept notes for those?
Ron Bramhall
01:13:48
The necessity for the Religious Accommodation is in place for when a student opts to tell you they will be absent for religious observance and it’s a University policy.
Elliot Berkman (he/him/Ell)
01:14:38
Wood then Reynolds
Kelly Sutherland (she, her)
01:15:38
Per senator Reynolds comment that a no absence policy could disproportionately affect students , I agree, and further, almost any absence policy-- let's say two absences are allowed-- can end up falling disparately on students with different burdens.
Anthony Hornof
01:17:59
Colin Koopman's comments are very compelling.
Kristy (she,her,hers) Bryant-Berg
01:18:05
Given all of this complexity, should attendance be recommended rather than required and graded?
Ron Bramhall
01:18:39
Good question on the athletic absences. I suspect that is both a courtesy on their part and based on a past history of knowing faculty required reasons for absences. I also suspect it’s useful for faculty to know ahead of time.
Gabriele Hayden
01:18:41
Sen Koopman makes an important point about equity vs equal application. At my graduate institution there was a separate person (college masters) who adjudicated allowable absences and simply communicated their decisions to instructors.
Jen Reynolds
01:18:57
Kristy, some classes (like experiential courses) need student attendance and participation
Jay Silveira (he/him/his)
01:19:19
^^As do performance ensembles in the School of Music and Dance.
Anne "Michelle" Wood (she/hers)
01:19:40
Agreed… those with supervised clinical experience, or similar…

01:21:58
Thank you Frances, this is a lot!
Anthony Hornof
01:23:47
Colin's comments did a great job articulating what I believe a lot of us are sensing. There is a lot to be said for (a) student-centered approaches. But there is also a lot to be said for (b) academic freedom AND rigor. The attendance issues have revealed potential conflict between (a) and (b). (This is not a paraphrase of Colin's extensive and thoughtful comments.) Thank you, Colin.
Bill Harbaugh
01:28:13
I support this, I am just wondering why it is a resolution, rather than legislation, given that creates a School.
N Phillips
01:30:31
What does "community engagement" (on an early slide) mean?
Bill Harbaugh
01:31:10
2.1 THEREFORE BE IT MOVED that the University Senate endorses a resolution …
Elliot Berkman (he/him/Ell)

Patrick Phillips
01:39:09
I want to take a moment to thank all of the faculty involved in this effort for their hard work, their vision, and their willingness to think so carefully about the future of the university. I also thank the CAS deans for their leadership and advocacy for the effort. And to President Schill for his support of the programatic activities of the new school. Very, very excited about where this will lead us.

I implore the CIET to remove the requirement that units must use the Teaching Evaluation Criteria document. The Teaching Evaluation Criteria document can be a resource for units but should not be the required way to implement the standards agreed upon in the MOU.

Robin Clement
01:47:26
Will Colleges have the opportunity to add their own questions and use a numerical scale approach?
Bill Harbaugh

Robin, the Senate has rejected the use of numerical scales - I think unanimously. Of course you could try to change that.
Jay Butler-Black Lives Matter
