Implementation of AMS Online Ocean Studies Course at CCSN, Las Vegas, Nevada
Exhibit Hall C (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center)
Barbara Graham, College Southern Nevada, North Las Vegas, NV
Since changes in academic administration happen quite frequently and facilitate change in policy, one of the areas that has changed and become somewhat of a mystery, is the introduction of a new course at CCSN. The introduction of the AMS Online Oceans course is a new course at CCSN. The procedure and policy for instituting a new course has been expanded to include contact with Nevada's three additional community college's, and the states three universities. Additionally, the course is offered as a distance education course which now involves a distance education department.

The goal of this poster presentation is to efficiently outline and explain the procedure for implementation of a new course in the UCCSD system. It is my hope that this poster/presentation will be available for all faculty at the colleges and universities to follow when introducing a new course.
