The Curriculum Management platform allows you to propose a new course or program. The overall process is the same for both; what differs is where you go to get started.
To propose a new course, navigate to Curriculum Management > Courses.
To propose a new program, navigate to Curriculum Management > Programs.
How To Do It
Step 1: Select “+Propose New Course/Program”.
Step 2: Select the form you’d like to use for your proposal, and then click “Submit”.
Fill out all “Required” fields (they will have a “required” flag next to them) for Course proposals.
You can learn more about creating requirements/requisites here.
To use a single proposal to create multiple offerings (courses) in a cross-listed group, see “Submitting One Proposal for Cross-Listings” below.
All changes to your proposal will auto-save; if you need to navigate away from the page before you submit your proposal – and need to access your draft later – you can find that at Curriculum > Drafts.
Step 4: When you’re ready, click “Submit Proposal” on the right-hand toolbar under “Actions”.
Submitting One Proposal for Multiple Courses in a Group
When proposing new courses, you can use a single proposal to create multiple courses in a cross-listed group.
Once the proposal has been submitted and approved, all courses will be created.
You can learn more about cross listings here.
How to Do It
Follow Steps 1-3 above, and then:
Step 1: Specify “Subject Code” and “Course Number”.
Step 2: Under “Cross Listed Courses”, select “Click to edit”.
Step 3: Select “Add Additional Courses”.
Step 4: Input the Subject Code and Course Number for each of the courses you wish to add.
Click “Save” in the “Cross Listed Courses” modal.
Upon saving, a new cross listed courses group is created and the additional courses are added into the cross listed courses question.
Step 6: When you’re ready, click “Submit Proposal” on the right-hand toolbar under “Actions”.
When a user creates a new proposal, they will see a "Pre-populate Data" card at the top of the proposal. This card allows them to select from either an existing proposal or an existing object (i.e. course or program) to pre-populate the form. This can help save you time if your proposal is very similar to an existing course/program or proposal.
Pre-Populate Data from an Existing Proposal
If you wish to use an existing proposal to pre-populate your new one, select “Copy from Proposal”. The following modal will then pop up:
Pre-Populate Data from an Existing Course/Program
If you wish to use an existing course or program to pre-populate your new one, select “Copy from Course” (or “Copy from Program” depending on where you are in the platform). The following modal will then pop up:
When a user attempts to submit a proposal that is invalid, a text alert box will inform the user of the issue; it will include guidance on how to resolve it.
