NGLC Project Outcomes

Page history last edited by Sue Schmidt 6 years, 9 months ago

There were eight outcomes set out in the NGLC initiative.  See Project Outline, Tasks and Deadlines spreadsheet for more detail. 


The eight outcomes were:


  • Outcome 1: Advisory Board formed to provide oversight of project long-term vision, and plans for scaling network.

  • Outcome 2: Discipline panels formed for each of biology, physics and chemistry. Members come from all participating institutions as well as potential future participants building awareness and interest in NANSLO as well as positioning it for future growth. Inclusion of 2-yr college representatives and 4 year university representatives helps ensure transfer and articulation. Discipline panels constitute open curicula working groups who revise, enhance and develop the adaptable open core courses as well as developing localized versions.

  • Outcome 3: Open Core Courses - Biology, Physics, Chemistry - 3 existing BC open courses are improved by discipline panels generating 3 adaptable open courses ready for use by anyone as well as localized versions specific to BC and CCCS  needs. Lab kits are modified to complement RWSL course labs and revised learning outcomes.

  • Outcome 4: Replication of RWSL - BC-based RWSL will be replicated in Colorado and networked to RWSL in BC. Students enrolled in courses will have access to RWSLs for labs.

  • Outcome 5: Faculty are trained in use of RWSL.

  • Outcome 6: Student enrollment (review current estimates of enrollment and refine).

  • Outcome 7: Evaluation - Formative and summative evaluation including student outcomes, faculty acceptance and feasibility of scaling and replicating network.

  • Outcome 8:  Institutions collectively collaborating on and using open core science courses and remote web-based science labs. Three expansion resources developed including:  environmental scan, how-to-adoption manual including policies and procedures, and a scale network template to assist in scaling use of remote labs across all institutions of NANSLO as well as sustainability model.


NGLC Report:  WICHE delivered a final report to NGLC on March 31. 2012.
