Academic Affairs Council

October 12, 2004

Present: Randy Gordon, Dan Glisczinski, Ken Gilbertson (chair), Cindy Spillars, Jackie Millslagle.

Convened at 11:05.

Coaching minor proposals were submitted and circulated late, so will be considered at the October 26 meeting.

There was significant discussion on the proosal for Psy 3550, Applied Sport Psychology, 4 cr. Discussion centered around potential duplication of content with CC 3160, Psychological Aspects of Coaching (part of the coaching revisions includes a change in this course from 2 to 3 credits). Memos documenting discussions between respective faculty document that the new course would emphasize theory, while the CC course would be applied. There was still agreement, however, that more discussion was needed between departments about the curriculum duplication issue; if there will be additional courses in the field developed; and the impact on other programs. Randy will ask the Psychology department head to initiate the discussions. Proposal was tabled.

Adjourned at 11:40.

Jackie Millslagle, Recorder
