Item Discussion / Comments / Outcome
Michelle Grimes-Hillman, newest member of the EDC, has been appointed by the Academic Senate to be the liaison between the Professional Development Council and the Educational Delivery Council. Barbara Silverman, Director of Research & Institutional Effectiveness, stated that she can help the EDC with evaluating the effectiveness of the use of alternative modes of instruction which is part of the EDC's mission statement.
The following EDC program reports have been submitted: After School College, Distance Learning, Honors (hard copy, online to follow soon), Service Learning, Study Abroad, Summer Bridge, and Weekend Business College. They may be viewed at http://vclass.mtsac.edu/edc/reports/rpt.asp .

DSP&S and Supplemental Instruction will be submitted in the next two weeks. These reports will be completed annually by the coordinators of each special program in lieu of Program Review and will be forwarded to the Educational Programs Council for review. Like Program Review reports, they may be used in the budget process. It was suggested that a Procedures Manual be prepared for each program. A few notations pertaining to some of the programs included:

Honors: Carolyn Inmon, new faculty representative for the Honors program, replaced Mary Brackenhoff.
