Curriculum Development at VCC
The CTLR provides support to departments, programs, and faculty in the design, development, evaluation and revision of programs and courses. The team will design tailored workshops to fit your department needs. An Instructional Associate (IA) will also guide you through the VCC governance approval process (VCC Curriculum Committee and Education Council) as outlined in the Curriculum Development and Approval Process Policy.
Curriculum documentation is created and approved through the VCC Governance process. These processes may include the Curriculum Committee, Education Council (EDCO) and the Board of Governors. The process is supported by the CTLR’s Instructional Associates and usually includes development or updating of curriculum documents, review by other college departments, and then submission to the VCC Curriculum Committee and EDCO for approval.
