REPORT ON RECERTIFICATION OF W COURSE: ALED 440
We recommend that ALED 440 Leading Change be certified as a writing (W) course for four academic years (1/18 to 1/22). We have reviewed a representative syllabus and have determined that the course meets or exceeds the following criteria:
- Percentage of final grade based on writing quality: 60
- Course content appropriate to the major
- Total number of words: 2000
- Instructor to student ratio for one section: 1:24
Since original certification, the course has not changed significantly. Four Graduate Teaching Assistants help teach this course. Students write a change paper (with citations) and an innovation paper. The instructor or a teaching assistant provides written comments on drafts. Instruction includes the use of sample papers, and samples of proper citation and formatting.
