Your descriptions should include the following information:
· a description of the course content, in language that is both understandable and attractive to undergraduates
· information regarding the reading load and assigned texts
· any course requirements (include exam and grading information)
Registration for the spring semester begins on April 4. Because students are assessed a fee to drop and add after their initial registration, it is important that we provide detailed undergraduate and graduate course descriptions that enable students to make informed decisions when registering. Publicizing our courses promptly and efficiently is one way to increase our enrollments.
If you’d like a copy of the description that was used when the class was last taught, please contact Deana Hutchins at email@example.com.
II. PROMOTIONAL FLIERS
In addition to your description, we would like to produce a colorful flier for your class. You can do this yourself, or we can do it for you. In both cases, fliers must include ALL of the following information:
Department of History
Course number and OFFICIAL name of course
-Course topic, if an “Issues” course (eg W200, G300, etc.)
Instructor first and last name
Day and time, with space for room number [we will fill in the room number]
A brief course description (100 words max., less is fine)
The phrase "Fulfills CASE ____ [and GenEd ____]" [If you’re unsure, we will fill this in for you.]
If you prefer that we make a flier for you, please send all this information, along with an image file, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will display these fliers in our display case in the BH ground-floor hallway, as well as on a bulletin board on 7. We can also distribute extra copies to other relevant departments, as well as to campus undergrad advisors. We will again post fliers on our undergraduate course webpage, and use some of the pictures on our Facebook page. Finally, we will send an alert to all undergraduates enrolled in our 2015-16 classes, letting them know that they can find course descriptions online and encouraging them to register.
Feel free to promote your course(s) yourself by e-mailing your description or flier to area studies programs or other departments from which you think you might draw students.
