3. A.3. The institution’s program quality and learning goals are consistent across all modes of delivery and all locations (on the main campus, at additional locations, by distance, delivery, as dual credit, through contractual or consortial arrangements, or any other modality).
Five core general education courses are provided for all students in all programs. These include LBAR-300 Junior Seminar, ENGL-310 Advanced Composition and Textual Analysis I, SCIE-330 Research Methods; SOCI-310 Human Diversity, and LBAR-499 Senior Seminar. The content and rigor of programs are comparable wherever and however the programs are delivered. Miller College offers seated and online classes at the campus as well as off-site (Grahl Center, Fehsenfeld Center, and Eastern Academic Center). All classes use the Worldwide Instructional Design System (WIDS) to formulate the course goals, competencies, and syllabi for consistency in delivery (See WIDS). This consistency is maintained through multiple approaches: all courses are developed by qualified educators using WIDS; Deans approve the developed course; courses are then approved by Academic Affairs; and appropriately, course and instructor evaluations are conducted at the end of each semester to assess the effectiveness of the developed course. Syllabi are evaluated by the Deans, Academic Support person to the Vice President to ensure that seat time and homework requirements are met (See Credit Hour Definition). Courses may then be further adjusted to align more tightly with its goals. Consistency between sections of the same course is defined by the shared goals, competencies, and objectives approved by Academic Affairs; however, instructors may use their own methods for achieving these goals.
Dual Credit courses and consortial arrangements are not part of the Miller College curriculum and other modalities have not emerged at this time.
