Faculty & Advisor Information
Catalog & Curriculum Management
Curriculog is now available for proposing changes to the catalog. Proposals are routed through workflow to all necessary roles and committees on campus for internal governance review before publishing in the 2024-25 General and Graduate Catalogs.
Curriculog – Curriculum Management Training and Support Sessions
Training is now available in person and online. A recording of a live training session has been published in LinkedIn Learning for those who prefer online asynchronous learning. The in-person training and support session schedule is available in Bookwhen. Faculty who will be writing catalog change proposals are invited to attend a session in a computer lab to receive personalized instruction.
We have a new Grade Change form for instructors to use in updating a final course grade. Faculty members are sent a confirmation message upon submission of the form, and it is automatically routed for the approvals needed, according to the Faculty Handbook. Notifications are sent to Financial Aid and Athletics Compliance as needed.
Schedule of Classes
In response to requests from members of the faculty for access to enter and edit course section details for the Schedule of Classes, the Office of the Registrar made training available in 2021. Department chairs, program directors, deans, and academic support staff are invited to complete this training to gain access in Colleague to modify the schedule. In the training, you will learn about using previous schedules as a template and managing details such as the instructor’s name, the section cap, and the instructional method.
A recording has been posted in LinkedIn Learning for those that were unavailable during the live sessions. Upon completion of the training, you may request access to the schedule screens in Ellucian Colleague by sending an email to email@example.com.
Access to editing the schedule will allow those managing a department or college’s course details to make quick changes on demand. This will be especially helpful for those that adjust section caps throughout the registration period and FOCUS.
We’re happy to answer your questions and address the unique scheduling needs for your department’s courses, such as co-requisite labs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to schedule a help session.
