A Supportive Note from COEHS – Associate Dean Jennifer Kane
Re: APC changes, seeking your input and support
Jeff received your email yesterday and we have concluded that if you all do not wish to offer the Diversity course we will support you dropping it from the POS. Please remember that the Professional Education Exam includes content that is covered in that course. We would suggest that you include the course as a highly recommended choice for the diversity requirement in General Education. It was just approved so students can count that course for a Gen Ed requirement. You can check the Florida DOE website for initial certification to see what they would need to take in the master’s degree for initial certification. We are happy to include any courses they may need i.e. Assessment, TESOL and Reading in the Content Area. We do not have any objections to you all pursuing that degree. Are you planning to move the degree to your college since it already exists in COEHS?
We could sit down and discuss this with you in more detail if you would like. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
