May 2015 Meeting Notes
WDN Shared Governance Board update: QA Process
Board is developing a rubric for clear and focused feedback. Alan & Erin share reports for College of Engineering and Department of English. The Board looks at Accessibility & Validity, Information Architecture, Media, and Style Book/Responsiveness. For each category, there are columns for Status, Notes, Suggested Resolution. College of Business Administration and Department of Computer Science & Engineering are up for review next Monday, followed by College of Law, College of Arts & Sciences, and College of Education and Human Sciences.
