Course Identification Numbering System (C-ID) – Common Course Numbering, Articulation, Transfer Degrees, and Beyond Michelle Pilati, Rio Hondo College Duane Short, San Diego Miramar College Overview • • • • • • What is C-ID? C-ID and Articulation C-ID and TMC C-ID and Your Curriculum The Future of C-ID Questions and discussion What is C-ID? • Origins – A replacement for CAN – A replacement for LDTP – A response to various mandates and needs from legislature and others – CCCCO supported – Faculty driven & intersegmental What is C-ID? • A “common course numbering system” • A set of descriptors to help “translate” between courses at different institutions • A way to streamline articulation and transfer What is C-ID? • A bilateral system of articulation • The building blocks for TMCs / SB1440 degrees • A tool to help in your curriculum development What else is C-ID? • ..an established infrastructure for intersegmental vetting. • ..the only existing venue for the convening of intersegmental discipline faculty. • ..a well-positioned initiative to facilitate intersegmental collaboration. • ..funded for foreseeable future. Where can one get C-ID information? • www.c-id.net – General project information – Discipline list servs (sign up today!) – Descriptors • For review and finalized – Established articulation – COR Review – TMC • For review and finalized C-ID and Articulation • A system of bilateral articulation (CCC to CSU and CCC to CCC) • Descriptor-based – Like a general course outline – Specify the “minimum requirements” for a course to receive a C-ID designator What is C-ID? • Descriptor example – C-ID MATH 240 Ordinary Differential Equations, and; – Hartnell College’s MAT 5 C-ID and Articulation • C-ID Approval means – Your course is articulated to every CSU that has articulated the C-ID descriptor – Your course is articulated to every other CCC course approved for the same descriptor – You must accept every other CCC course approved for the same descriptor in lieu of your own course C-ID and TMC • C-ID descriptors used to “build” TMCs – C-ID descriptors developed and approved intersegmentally – CCC courses approved for C-ID descriptors have been reviewed by CSU and CCC faculty – CCC courses approved for C-ID descriptors carry bilateral articulation C-ID and TMC • C-ID approval and SB-1440 degrees –Currently, CCC courses do not need C-ID approval to be part of an approved SB-1440 degree –BUT in the future they will C-ID and Your Curriculum • C-ID descriptors can aid in developing your curriculum – Like a general course outline – Specify the “minimum requirements” for a course to receive a C-ID designator – Developed by an intersegmental group of CCC and CSU faculty – Articulated by many CSU and CCC campuses C-ID and Your Curriculum • C-ID descriptor components – Course description – Minimum units – Prerequisites & advisories – Course content – Laboratory activities – Course objectives – Methods of evaluation – Sample textbooks or other support materials C-ID and Your Curriculum • Benefits to submitting courses for C-ID – Increased articulation with CSUs – Possibility for increased articulation with UCs and private/out of state universities – Bilateral articulation with CCCs – Future SB-1440 degree approval – Reinvention of wheel not required! C-ID and Your Curriculum • Working with discipline faculty – Provide descriptor as an example/tool – Ask if other CCC courses approved for the descriptor will be accepted in lieu of your course – Other ideas?? The Future of C-ID • 2011-12 – C-ID in ASSIST – Finalize more descriptors – Add disciplines and courses – Continue support of TMCs • Top 20 Discipline Status Top 20 Discipline Status (2007-2008) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
