3.30.3 Interactive Class Scheduling

With increased and better utilization of ITV on all campuses, it has become necessary to develop and implement a "scheduling priorities" policy. ITV Courses/ Faculty Work assignments are determined by the College Academic Team. All classes are scheduled through the College Academic Office.

In making decisions, the academic team will adhere to the following principles:

  1. When there is a conflict between one or more classes for a particular time slot, the Academic Vice President and/or the Academic Team will favor the class that does the most good for the largest number of students within the five campuses.
  2. Examine the history of the class, taking into account the number of students and learning efficiency.
  3. Consider how the course offering fits into Minnesota West's distance delivery mission and how it can be coordinated with all other distance delivery commitments.
