Report received. Here is an outline of the current plan.
Possible AndrewT-style surveys of all core courses taken by Software Engineering students. This could be extended to Bioinformatics and Computer Engineering, and to Computer Science (i.e. Maths 1A/B and Discrete Maths).
Brad will look into implementing a mid-session survey for session 2. The TC particularly like the idea of surveying non-CSE core courses.
Proposal approved - goes next to Faculty Education Committee.
Companion proposal - revision / renaming of COMP9417 (Proposal doc
This proposal was not considered by the meeting. One reason was the short lead time for looking at the paperwork. In order to get this proposal to the Faculty Education Committee together with the Data Mining and Warehousing proposal, it is proposed that the proposal be considered electronically. If you have any views or suggestions or even see any typos in the proposal, please let billw know asap.
The committee noted John Shepherd's document.
The aim of the original item was to improve our positioning in the computing education market, given the current perilous budget position. Following discussion at the meeting, it seems likely that we will run advanced versions of all or most of our courses, with the extra material being covered in an advanced tutorial group. This proposal is to be considered at a School Meeting, hopefully the June one, though some member of the school are already moving to implement it.
