QEP Implementation 2016-2021

Because MT Engage focuses on challenging students to use integrative thinking and reflection across multiple contexts and educational experiences, it is important to begin recruitment of faculty to teach courses at the lower-division level so that students are introduced to this their freshman year. To begin preparing for the official launch of MT Engage, eight sections of MT Engage UNIV 1010 were piloted in Fall 2015 and an additional three courses were piloted in Spring 2016 including HIST 3070, ENGL 1020 and UNIV 1010. Starting in Fall 2016, the recruitment of faculty and courses will take place in phases over five years as follows:

Phase I: Fall 2016 & Spring 2017 (lower division):

  • In Fall 2016, increase UNIV 1010 sections
  • In Fall 2016, pilot the following general education courses: ENGL 1010/1020, COMM 2200, PHYS 1030, HIST 2030, etc.
  • Pilot lower division introduction courses in the major (i.e., ARAB 1010, THEA 2000, PHYS 1010, etc.)
  • Add additional general education/lower division courses in Spring 2017 

Phase II: Fall 2017 & Spring 2018 (lower division):

  • In Fall 2017, add additional sections of UNIV 1010
  • Add courses from the general education categories of Humanities and Fine Arts and Social and Behavioral Sciences
  • Add additional general education/lower division courses
  • Add online sections of classes

Phase III: Fall 2018 & Spring 2019 (upper division and majors):

  • Add general education classes in colleges/departments not already participating;
  • Pilot majors as part of the MT Engage Major Pathways initiative

Phase IV: Fall 2019 & Spring 2020 (additional majors offered):

  • Add general education classes in colleges/departments not already participating
  • Add additional majors as part of the MT Engage Major Pathways initiative

Phase V: Fall 2020 & Spring 2021 (pilot graduate courses/programs):

  • Select graduate programs offered as MT Engage (Master of Arts in Liberal Arts, etc.)
  • Add General Education classes in colleges/departments not already participating
  • Add additional majors as part of the MT Engage Major Pathways initiative

This plan for phasing in MT Engage courses will result in the institutionalizing of integrative thinking and reflection practices in the curriculum over a 5 year-period.
