Best Practices for Managing Blackboard Course Size

Facilitating Acute Care Competencies & Confidence in Physical Therapy Doctoral Students: Outcomes of a CITG Project

Wednesday October 25, 2023 from 12 – 1 pm  HS 109 – SHP Simulation Lab 

With Stacy Stolzman & Physical Therapy Doctoral Students  

Last year, the Concordia Intermural Teaching Grant (CITG) supported a teaching and learning project to expand student learning using the new School of Health Professions Simulation Lab.  This presentation will show how DPT students gained acute care competencies and increased confidence in a graduate course taught by Dr. Stolzman which was supported by grant-funded faculty development at Mayo Clinic and grant-funded equipment used in the lab.  See the students in action completing an acute care simulation scenario and learn the critical pieces of simulation learning. While food is not usually allowed in the Simulation Lab, you may bring your bag lunch for this event.

Syllabus Issues, Alignment with Catalog, and Updates to Banner Course Information Forms

Friday October 20, Noon – 1:00 pm Central/1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern via Zoom 

With Elizabeth Evans and Allison Wolf 

The audience for this program is faculty, department chairs, program directors, academic support staff, and deans. 

The Academic Office has seen an increase in syllabi submissions that contain information misaligned with Banner Course Information (BCI) data. BCI data is used by the Registrar’s office to create the catalog and scribe Degree Works program audits. Syllabi provided to students should match the catalog information for the year in which a course is offered.  

This session will focus on our need to provide students with syllabi that match the current catalog year, the submission of syllabi to the Academic Office by Department Chairs and Program Directors, and what to do when changes to a syllabus, and its BCI data, are needed. Other areas that need attention for improvement of syllabi will also be covered in brief, and an explanation and demonstration of the updated BCI mach form will be provided.
