Dick Telfer then shared with the committee that a subgroup of the UCC had met prior to the UCC meeting to review the travel study proposals. The committee noted that:
1. All of the travel studies required that something be done ahead of time.
2. Most contained some formal or informal discussion during travel.
3. Grades required a journal, test, paper, or some combination thereof.
The committee is recommending that lecture hours count 1:1 so that 20 hours of lecture would equal 20 contact hours, and that appropriate field work be considered as a lab and count as 2:1 (56 field hours would equal 28 contact hours). It was also noted that all travel studies reviewed would have met the contact hour requirement given these guidelines.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:42 p.m. on a Anne Hamilton/George Ferencz motion.
