As of AY 2014-2015, Crossing Boundaries courses that meet the guidelines set forth in the Common Academic Program approved by the Academic Senate (April 2010) and the related University of Dayton Student Learning Outcomes will begin to be offered. In preparation for the CAP, the University is providing resources to support individuals interested in devoting the expertise, time, energy, and imagination to develop and pilot courses. During the AY 2012 – 2013, a limited number of Crossing Boundaries Pilots grants were offered by the Office of the Provost with the CAP Leadership Team overseeing this process. Successful grant applicants will be awarded $2500 per person for the development or significant revision and implementation of a Crossing Boundaries pilot course.
Pilot courses have been awarded on the basis of their alignment with the Crossing Boundaries requirements and responses to the criteria and questions in the proposal form. Preference has been given to proposals that clearly define Student Learning Outcomes and methods for assessment for continuous improvement. Collaboration with co-curricular departments has been encouraged (e.g. student development, campus ministry, center of international programs, Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, etc.). Applicants were required to have participated in at least 3 of the CAP Faculty Institute sessions. Faculty who had already received funding for development of crossing boundaries course were ineligible for additional funding.
Submission Guidelines and Pilot Responsibilities
Those piloting Crossing Boundaries courses were/are:
1. required to consult with the department chair(s) and dean(s) and obtain signature(s) of endorsement for specific proposals. Proposals that include faculty from multiple units must have approval from all respective department chairs and deans. Additionally, faculty proposing a course that overlaps with a discipline outside their own must also consult with faculty from the department with which there will be overlap. These consultations will be considered in the grant review.
2. required to submit a pilot proposal to Sawyer Hunley, Assistant Provost for CAP by 11:50 pm, October 15, 2012. Each proposal will be reviewed for approval by the CAP Leadership Team and announcement of awards will be made by November 15, 2012.
3. required to attend a minimum of three sessions of the CAP Faculty Institute. One of these sessions must focus on assessment. These sessions are geared to provide a foundation for the creation of CAP Crossing Boundaries courses. To register for the sessions contact Lora Butcher at email@example.com or call 229.3309. Faculty development attendance includes those sessions that have been offered since January, 2011.
4. required to participate in the Crossing Boundaries cohort meetings.
5. required to conduct the pilot course in the designated semester, assess student learning outcomes, and share findings more widely in a Faculty Exchange Series Session or other community vehicle for dissemination.
6. required to provide an electronic report to Sawyer Hunley, Assistant Provost for CA and the chairs and deans of the relevant units.
The approval of the pilot does not ensure that the course will be approved by the CAP and Competencies Committee for use in CAP beyond the pilot period. Likewise, CAP course approval is not contingent on grant participation.
