    4 Definition of Applied Degrees Judith will be meeting with the Ministry on December 17 to discuss Applied Degrees and was given the following suggestions in response to her request for Kwantlens interpretation of Applied Degrees

    primary intent is to enable students to gain employment as opposed to moving on to further education

    job related skills worked into curriculum and able to apply them on graduation strong coop option need to include broader educational experience today and how we can build on it

    December 8 1999 Page 1

  • general statement can say that applied degree builds on a liberal education should integrate values coop education is meeting the needs of the workplace integrate lib ed component employed could mean working for sonteone else or yourself skillsets could be used to define certain areas

    need to maintain an open perspective on word skillsets prefer a broad definition rather than narrow

    employability skills and liberal education applied with a discipline specific focus knowledge skills attitudes

    could take back to Development Team for their input those that did an Applied Degree LOI applied is sometimes redundant we have changed our emphasis on training for graduate school to training for jobs that has been our emphasis is graduate school element creeping back in if we focus on lib ed coop etc it is ahnost too much is there a growing desire to have graduates of applied go into graduate school or into a researchbased grad program

    5 Response to Ministry re LOI Bachelor of Applied Journalism The Ministry has approved this LO1 based on our responses to their queries

    Some points to keep in mind for future LO1 submissions let other institutes know that we are quoting them in our submission if we refer to them and what they are doing identify in LO1 that we spoke with personsname and include their glowing remarks and concerns

    we need to talk to people in related areas within the institute if something looks familiar or close to what is going on talk about it

    6 Feedback from October 22 Meeting with Ministry Regarding the NonDegree Approval Process

    John Slattery Judith and Dana met with Arlene Paton and Dawn McKay from the Ministry on October 22 to discuss the Non Degree Approval Process The following points arose from that discussion

    Ministry want feedback as they look at this in a systems wide way response to our submission could be rapid as there is no requirement to circulate to other institutes for their review internal review only if a program is running successfully it would be viewed favourably if we are in doubt we are welcome to contact them with questions they now understand the extent to which our course outlines are reviewed some requests have been received by the Ministry from 1TAC two different sets of requirements Ministry now needs to meet with ITAC people Ministry would try and streamline forms still need definition of certificate and citation

    they want to approve anything that is approved by Education Council

    7 Definition of Liberal Education Courses for Degrees Barbara Duggan suggested the Liberal Education Committee look at a definition of what constitutes a Liberal Education Course Can we identify which courses within the program meet the definition

    Ed Council work on Lib Ed should be looked at as a reminder

    has been looked at in a non traditional way by Ed Council

    December 8 1999 Page 2


  • go back and look at learning outcomes of lib ed how does it lead towards these outcomes

    Title of Proposed Program TRAVEL AND TOURISM

    Proposed Start Date of Program March 2000 unki

    Length of the Program 22 weeks followed bya24 week practicum for a total of 2426 weeks

    Credential to be Awarded

    to Graduates Travel and Tourism Certificate4

    Rationale for level of credential and program length

    The length of the program is consistent with the minimum requirements for a Kwantlen University College Certificate and with the Canadian National Occupational Standards as published by the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council and ACCESS see Appendix A

    Program length Twentytwo weeks will allow sufficient time to cover the essential components of the program such as the travel trade in particular and tourism in general work experience the employment search and employability skills

    Purpose and Benefits of the Proposed Program

    a Purpose To enhance the employability of students by indepth instruction on the tourism sectors This program will be mainly targeted at students graduating from high school

    adults seeking a career change or the unemployed seeking applied skills to enter the rapidly expanding tourism industry The program also appeals to international students who originate in countries where tourism education and technology is less advanced

    b Educational effectiveness This industrydriven program offers students a well balanced blend of academic content and portable applied skills that are transferable to all sectors of the tourism industry It incorporates extensive handson technology training and includes all the Employability Skills as defined by the Conference Board of Canada according to a recent survey of courses and programs at Kwantlen University College

    see Appendix B

    The program originally titled Travel Industry Training has grown from its first delivery on one campus in 1990 to three deliveries per semester on three campuses This positive expansion is testimony to graduate students from this program securing employment

    Page 2

  • c To ensure students employment or progression to further education the program covers content that is endorsed by the National Occupational Standards ACCESS is recognized by the Pacific Rim Institute of Tourism PRIT and that is a component in the provincial laddering model for British Columbia Tourism Education see Appendix C The program also qualifies for credits in the Association of Tourism Professionals ATP

    d In 1996 Kwantlen forged an industry partnership with the Thomas Cook Group in relation to the Travel and Tourism program which included the oncampus establishment of Kwantlen Travel a bonafide fullservice travel agency This agency provides students and instructors with instant updated industry information provides services to the college and the community at large and is an inhouse practicum host In addition The Thomas Cook Group provides several live computer
