2014 ANNUAL KANSAS CORE OUTCOME GROUPS MEETING


Each year faculty from all 32 institutions are invited to participate in the Kansas Core Outcomes Group Project to articulate core outcomes for courses to be recommended for system-wide transfer. A total of 46 courses have been approved for system-wide transfer based on the work and dedication of faculty at previous meetings. The 2014 annual meeting will be held on September 12, at Johnson County Community College, where approximately 25-30 courses will be reviewed.

Please review the tentative course list below, and determine the appropriate faculty to attend the meeting on September 12, 2014. Selected faculty should:

  • Be familiar with the course, its syllabus, and the course number and title used by the institution
  • Be empowered to write student outcomes and represent the vote of the institution for each course articulated for system-wide transfer.  

All courses offered on your campus that align with the tentative course list should have a representative in attendance at the meeting. Please identify the appropriate faculty at your institution and plan to have them register for the annual meeting; online registration will become available in early-August.
