RE: 502, WA3, Little

The purpose of EVOC 502 WA3 was to prepare a proposal for a course budget for the course I teach in Oceanography. The following six criteria were specified:

1.     Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.

2.     Provide a brief narrative description of the course (similar to course descriptions prepared for the Course and Unit Plan Assignment from the EVOC 501 course) that indicates what the course is all about and the time frame for course delivery.

3.     List all of the expenses that would be incurred to run the course for one complete term. All items should be clearly identified. List items under separate categories such as facilities, equipment, materials, faculty, staff support and special activities.

4.     Make realistic estimates of the actual expenses based on information that reflects existing circumstances and resources.

5.     Indicate how much money the course is likely to generate (ADA or other institutional standard) on the basis of projected enrollment.

6.     Limit the length of the budget document to not more than two or three pages following the format below or submit an actual budget on forms required by an actual educational institution.

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:

1.     Little, Rick - From my own professional experience.

2.      Lowman, Judy - Instructor at Chaffey College

I believe that the attached report meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Introduction to Oceanography is a course designed to acquaint students with the basic principles of underwater basket weaving. The history, materials and techniques of underwater basket weaving are reviewed and students are provided the opportunity to weave baskets underwater. This is a 54-hour course that meets for 3 hours, once a week for 18 weeks, plus a field trip of 8 hours. Of that time 36 hours is spent in the classroom and 18 hours in the lab. Maximum enrollment is 26 students.
