Curriculum Technical Review (Tech Review)
Technical Review is intended to ensure that course outlines of record are properly formatted and clearly communicated. Technical Review does not judge the content and/or educational validity of the proposed curriculum. That decision remains the purview of the Curriculum Committee.
Tech Review focuses on:
Membership: Tech Review is conducted by the Vice President of Academic Affairs (or designee), the Academic Senate Second Vice President /Curriculum chair, the Curriculum Dean, the Articulation Officer, a Library representative, and other Curriculum Committee members as needed for expertise in curriculum structural review.
Procedures and Timelines:
Technical Review takes place electronically via the Electronic Curriculum Development (ECD) on a continuous basis during fall and spring semesters, excluding intersessions. Every effort is made to complete the technical review within 14 calendar days from the date the curriculum proposal reaches Technical Review. After the 15th day in technical review the Chair of the Curriculum Committee may move the COR to the next stop in the curriculum process.
To be placed on the curriculum agenda, all technical review issues must be resolved no less than 7 calendar days prior to a curriculum meeting. If technical issues remain unresolved with less than 7 calendar days remaining until the next meeting, the request will be delayed until such time that all technical issues are resolved within 7 days prior to the meeting.
No pending COR may remain in the approval queue after the end of the academic year; if issues are not resolved by the end of the academic year, a new COR must be initiated for the next or subsequent academic years.
