SoCal CCC Faculty Needed for Info Systems C-ID Review

We are currently seeking a community college faculty member from Southern California interested in serving on the Information Systems Faculty Discipline Review Group (FDRG) for the Course Identification (C-ID) System. FDRG members must be full-time faculty with curriculum experience.
FDRGs, as senate-appointed discipline faculty, play an important role in the Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) process. The FDRG members are responsible for drafting and reviewing feedback on the Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) and actively work to finalize the TMCs developed for their disciplines.
FDRGs are also assembled to discuss, develop, review, and revise course descriptors for C-ID.  Each discipline group is comprised of faculty from the community college, CSU, and UC systems.  Since C-ID is predicated on faculty-to-faculty dialogue, each FDRG is facilitated by a lead discipline faculty member, or FDRG Lead, to carry out the tasks described in greater detail below. Members of the FDRG are responsible for a variety of tasks, including:
  1. Identification of those courses already widely articulated in their field, particularly those lower division, pre-major, or major courses in their discipline that are beyond the introductory core courses. The FDRGs must determine which courses within the discipline need descriptors and a C-ID number.
  2. Assignment of a supranumber to those prioritized courses based on the C-ID numbering protocol.
  3. Development (or review) and approval of C-ID descriptors for those numbered courses. Individual lower division courses awarded a C-ID number will reflect the published descriptor and will further assure transfer institutions that students successful in those classes should be well-prepared for upper division work.
Faculty members can also be active in reviewing submitted community college courses as Course Outline of Record Evaluators (COREs) and assigning appropriate C-ID designations to those courses – a process facilitated through the C-ID website.
Please let us know if you would be interested in serving your discipline as a member of the Information Systems FDRG.  If you cannot commit to being an FDRG member at this time, but would consider serving as a CORE (course reviewer) with regard to your discipline, please also let our office know of this interest.
Best Regards,
Holly Demé
