Education Wins Continuing Accreditation

The NCATE (National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education) Unit
Accreditation Board has approved UND's education unit with all 18 standards
met at the basic (undergraduate) and advanced (graduate) levels. In UND's
case, the education unit includes those programs in the College of Education
and Human Development dedicated to teacher and administrator education and
programs in other colleges which lead to teaching certificates, endorsements,
or credentials. Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, Fine Arts and
Communication, Business and Public Administration, and Engineering and Mines
are involved in this work.

Confirmation of state approval of all UND education programs presented was
received Oct. 17. The state team cited UND's education programs for strength
in use of multiple sources of data in student admissions and monitoring of
progress. The basic programs approved at UND prepare teachers in biology,
biological and physical science, business education, chemistry, communication,
early childhood education, earth science, elementary education, English,
French, geography, German, industrial technology, marketing education,
mathematics, middle school education, music, physical education, physics,
physical science, social studies, Spanish, theatre arts, visual arts.
Endorsement programs in athletic coaching, bilingual education, and
kindergarten were also approved. Programs for educators approved at the
advanced level prepare counselors for schools, principals, reading
specialists, special educators, including speech language pathologists, and
school superintendents as well as enabling teachers to engage in advanced
study of teaching and learning. -- Mary Harris, Dean, College of Education and
Human Development.

OF ACADEMIC INTEREST

Update Files For Faculty Award Process

In preparation for the annual faculty award process, full-time faculty may
wish to make sure that their personnel files are up to date. The file should
contain a current resume, the most recent October supplement, a list of
courses taught for the three most recent semesters, and, for graduate and

Guidelines Listed For Writing-Intensive Courses

Guidelines for Writing-Intensive (W) Courses to fulfill the third part of the
General Education Communications Requirement follow.
Writing-Intensive (W) courses are courses in any discipline and at any level
that make writing a central part of the learning process. Compared to other
courses which include writing, writing-intensive courses will generally
involve:

*    significantly more writing
*    more attention to writing on the part of the instructor
*    more opportunities for students to work on their writing in conjunction
with their normal course work.

Amount of Writing
Students in W courses are expected to write on a regular basis, producing a
minimum of 10 typed, double-spaced pages (about 3,000 words) per credit hour.
This writing may include both drafts and revisions, informal and formal,
graded and upgraded work. A significant portion (about five pages per credit)
should be finished, polished prose.

Instructional Strategies
Writing-intensive courses include instruction or guidance in clear written
expression, through activities that promote student learning and encourage
critical thinking. Examples of such activities include informal in-class
writing, response journals, graduated or sequenced assignments, individual
conferencing, peer response sessions, discussion of sample papers, and
opportunities to revise.

Syllabus Documentation
To ensure that students are aware of the special requirements of W courses,
the syllabus and course documentation should specify:

*    why writing is central to the course
*    how much writing will be required
*    how this writing will be used in assessing the course grade

Recommendations and Procedures

1.   Because writing-intensive courses are also response- or grading-intensive, the optimum size for such classes is 25 students or fewer.

2.   Both instructors and students are encouraged to use the resources of the
University Writing Program to support their work in writing-intensive courses.

3.   Instructors proposing a course for W status should provide a copy of the
syllabus along with a cover sheet that explains how the course falls within
the guidelines listed above. Proposals should be sent to me. -- Mary Bergstrom
(Admissions and Records), Secretary, General Education Requirements Committee,
Box 8357.
*******

featured guests on UND's Studio One on Channel 3 on Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 a.m.
live and repeated during the day.

Tadman will talk about the training that goes into an officer/canine
relationship, show footage of the K9 apprehending a subject, and discuss the

this kind of police work and the benefits of having a K9 unit, especially in

to obtain his master's and doctoral degrees from Notre Dame and has now
returned to UND. His area of expertise is in video enhancement, much
resembling what was done in the film "Forrest Gump."

Free Musiktanz Demonstrations Offered

The Music Department is sponsoring two free demonstrations to introduce the
Musiktanz Program to interested families.  Musiktanz is a curriculum developed
by Dr. Lorna Lutz Heyge, an internationally recognized author and early
childhood music educator. She is the founder of Kindermusik and co-author of
the early childhood curriculum, Kindermusik for the Young Child.  Musiktanz is
based on the English edition from her latest work, "A Cycle of Seasons." In
the Musiktanz program the teacher acts as a role model to assist the
parents/care givers in working musically with their children. The parents/care
givers attend the children's lessons  and participate with them in classes
which are comprised of a variety of developmentally appropriate musical
activities involving singing, moving, playing, creating, and listening.

The instructors for the free  Music Department demonstrations  will be Wendy
Ensz and MaryJane Kurpius-Brock, who are presently teaching these pre-school
music classes at UND. The demonstrations  will be held at Scott's Music Store
in the Columbia Mall on Saturday, Nov. 9, and Saturday, Dec. 7, for anyone who
is interested in learning about the Musiktanz approach to pre-school music
education.  Any parents/caregivers who with their children would like to be
participants in the demonstration should contact Wendy Ensz at 780-9686 or the
Music Department at 7-2644 to sign up.  The schedule will be as follows: Level
II (ages 3 to 5 1/2 years) 3:45 to 4:15 p.m. and Level I (ages 18 months to 3
1/2 years) 4:30 to 5 p.m. Please arrive a few minutes before your session

per semester is $60 for Level I and $75 for Level II.  For registration
information please call the Music Office at 7-2644. -- Barbara Lewis,

Women's Center Lists Programs

Upcoming programs for the Women's Center, 305 Hamline St., follow. All
programs begin at noon; feel free to bring your lunch. Please note that Monday
and Thursday events are for women only.

On Monday, Nov. 11, there will be no program due to the Veterans Day holiday.

The Wednesday, Nov. 13, Feast and Focus program is "Negotiating Relationships:
The Road to Romance." Intimate relationships require a lot of maintenance and
upkeep once you're beyond the getting acquainted stage. Learning to trust
someone physically and emotionally requires time, patience, caring, and mutual
respect, but it's a process that's key to the growth and health of any
relationship. Join us for this discussion on how to nurture and strengthen
your relationship with that special someone.

The Thursday, Nov. 14, For Women Only program is "Sexual Communication." The
majority of citizens in our country consider themselves unable or unwilling to
talk frankly, openly, and honestly about sex with their partners. In an age
where the media overwhelms us with a barrage of sexual innuendoes,
titillation, and jokes we are left without the knowledge or permission to talk
about sexual subjects in a healthy, assertive way. This discussion will focus
on ways that we can ask for something we need, to explain something sexual to
someone, or to refuse an undesired partner. -- Donna Oltmanns, Coordinator,
Women's Center.
