Master Course Approval Process

Central Texas College Distance Education

  1. After a master course has been developed and has gone through the four-step QA process, the appropriate Department Chair is sent a Department Chair Course Approval Statement via Etrieve. NOTE: The course development/revision process, QA, and Department Chair approval must be completed at least 30 days prior to course start date to allow for course copying and faculty review.

  2. The Department Chair has two weeks (ten business days) to either complete and submit to DEET the

    1. Department Chair Course Approval Statement or

    2. Department Chair Master Course Evaluation form that clearly details needed improvements.

  3. If neither form is submitted within the deadline, DEET will send a reminder to the Department Chair and copy the Dean of Instruction. The Dean of Instruction will communicate with the Department Chair to identify issues and concerns and reach a resolution and set a new deadline.

  4. If the Department Chair Master Course Evaluation form is submitted, improvements will be made through collaboration between DEET staff and the Content Reviewer.

  5. Steps 2-4 will be repeated until the Department Chair Course Approval Statement is received.

  6. Failure to reach agreement will result in a meeting that includes the Dean of Instruction, the Dean of Educational Technology, the Department Chair, and any other appropriate supervisor.

  7. When the Department Chair Course Approval Statement is submitted, the master course will be used for copying.
