SCI Course Criteria

An academic course will be designated as “SCI” if that course:

  • Incorporates and directly addresses two SC learning outcomes;
  • Requires one or more learning activities that measure student learning related to the selected SC learning outcomes. The faculty member is responsible for collecting and sharing the resultant student works with the Office of Academic Assessment;
  • Integrates the SCI Characteristics as instructional practices through the inclusion of at least one student-centered project that engages students in reflective practices and hands-on learning experiences in or outside of the classroom; and
  • Contains opportunities for any SCFs registered in the course to receive structured feedback on his or her ePortfolio entries related to the course or SCI course projects.

Assessment and Research

In order to measure the impact of SCI academic experiences over time on student learning and psycho-social development, faculty and academic project supervisors participate in ongoing assessment practices including survey research and collection of student works.
