Courses & Their Classification Workshop Recording & Slides

Yesterday, Tuesday, February 6, 2024, we offered our workshop on Courses & Their Classifications. This workshop is part of the suite of ABSO Training Courses announced last November, and was co-hosted by the staff in the Office of Academic Scheduling and Space Management and the Office of Undergraduate Education (Curriculum). We are sharing the workshop recording and slides with those of you who may have missed the workshop or would like access for future reference.

The workshop reviewed the curricular structure (courses vs. classes), how they relate to course classifications and how this impacts requirements for class time, and the process and timelines for curricular changes as published officially in the annual Academic Catalog. This workshop was primarily designed for department schedulers, but any SJSU staff or faculty are welcome to review the recording and slides. We are planning to include this workshop recording as a small part of a larger “Introduction to Academic Scheduling” class planned as part of the ABSO Training Courses.
