Schedule Types Definitions

The delivery of instruction often requires educational material to be organized and presented to students in a variety of ways. Schedule types are intended to reflect the nature of activities required of students, the relationship between students and their instructors and the settings required to deliver the content of an instructional offering.

Kent State schedule types and their Banner codes are listed below:

Clerkship (CLR) Lecture (LEC)

Individual Investigation (IND) Studio (STU)
International Experience (INT) Study Away (STA)
Laboratory (LAB) Workshop (WSP)


CLERKSHIP

A clerkship applies only to the podiatric medical training program, during which students in third and fourth years of medical school are required to participate in clinical sciences and patient care. Clerkships expose students to all facets of podiatric medicine and surgery in the hospital, surgery center, professional office and other clinical settings. in addition to podiatric clerkships, students are required to complete clerkships in general medicine. Elective and international clerkships may also be available. The student clerk gains essential experience managing the care of patients and learning the roles and responsibilities of a podiatric physician. They also witness first-hand the interaction with other health-care professionals. They are expected to observe and participate in patient care including the performance of basic podiatric and medical procedures under direct supervision. Students elicit patient histories, complete physical examinations, write progress notes, and assist in surgeries and medical procedures. Students are evaluated by the clerkship coordinator at each affiliated site. No stipend or pay is provided to the students.

  • Designated number: none
  • Schedule type: clerkship (CLR)
  • Grade modes permitted: satisfactory/unsatisfactory, in-progress*
  • Variable credit permitted: no; courses are 4 credits each
  • Credit-to-contact ratio: Four credit hours are awarded for a clerkship that typically comprises five mandatory months and one optional month of rotations, during which the work hours are that of a full-time job (i.e., 40 clock hours per week), generally similar to that of medical residents. Students may also be required to work on weekends and to be on call.


CLINICAL LABORATORY

A clinical laboratory allows for medical- or healthcare-focused experimental work where students meet at a health-related agency rather than in on-campus laboratory facilities to test, observe, experiment or practice a profession in a hands-on environment. A Kent State faculty member or a university-approved skilled practitioner (preceptor) directly supervises the clinical instruction.

  • Designated number: none
  • Schedule type: clinical laboratory (CLN)
  • Grade modes permitted: letter, satisfactory/unsatisfactory
  • Variable credit permitted: no
  • Credit-to-contact ratio: Credit hour is awarded on the same basis as a laboratory course.

COLLOQUIUM – VARIABLE CONTENT

A variable content colloquium has the same definition of a colloquium (see definition above), except that the content varies per course offering while overarching focus and learning outcomes are unchanged. The full title of the course includes the word “Colloquium,” and the individual title of each offering begins with “COLL:” in the Schedule of Classes and is printed on each student’s transcript. A colloquium that has relatively unchanging content and is offered with regularity should be assigned an unreserved number.

  • Designated number: xxx97
  • Schedule type: colloquium (COL)
  • Grade modes permitted: letter, satisfactory/unsatisfactory
  • Variable credit permitted: yes, between 1-3

Example: a 3-credit combined lecture/laboratory course (with lab having out-of-class study) in a standard week of a 15-week semester can be broken down in any of these ways:

  • 2 credits lecture + 1 credit laboratory = two nominal hours (100 clock minutes) lecture per week + two nominal hours (100 clock minutes) laboratory per week
  • 1.5 credits lecture + 1.5 credits laboratory = one-and-a-half nominal hours (75 clock minutes) lecture per week + three nominal hours (150 clock minutes) laboratory per week
  • 1 credit lecture + 2 credit laboratory = one nominal hour (50 clock minutes) lecture per week + four nominal hours (200 clock minutes) laboratory per week

See Scheduling Courses in the Term for a chart that breaks down the contact hours per course length for lecture and laboratory courses.


COOPERATIVE EDUCATION

Cooperative education is administered by the University College and is full-time off-campus paid employment that enhances students’ degree program by relating theory to practice and applying what they have learned in the classroom to real-life workplace scenarios.

Flight training is offered under the authority of an Air Agency Certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 141. Flight instruction is offered in the form of flight courses composed of instructional blocks made up of flight lessons that comply with standards of proficiency and competency stipulated in the FAA-approved Training Course Outline and Federal Aviation Regulations Parts 61 and 141.

  • Designated number: none
  • Schedule type: flight training (FLT)
  • Grade modes permitted: letter
  • Variable credit permitted: yes, between 1-3

†  In the context of flight training hours, flight time is measured in Hobbs time, which is an aeronautical equivalent of clock hours. As dictated by equipment related constraints, pilot health and weather conditions, the total actual flight time will exceed the stipulated minimum number of flight hours in aircraft and associated number of hours of ground-based flight theory instruction.


INDIVIDUAL INVESTIGATION

An individual investigation (or independent study) is a student-initiated experience to pursue an area of interest not covered by a regular course offering, with the guidance of a Kent State faculty member. The faculty member, who teaches such courses, has the primary responsibility to decide the subject content, objectives to be achieved and the effort to be expended by the student, and personally provides whatever instruction is required. The student is expected to complete pre-determined assignments, which may include a final research paper and a presentation on the findings of the study. The faculty member periodically assesses the student’s progress, determines the evaluation methods of the work presented and assigns the final grade.

Independent investigation should not be confused with individualized instruction, which is the teaching of a regular, existing course to a single student. Individualized instruction is offered only when the department or school is not offering a course according to the schedule or with sufficient frequency and it is needed by a student for a critical reason. in the case of an individualized instruction, the student should be registered into a section of the regular course, and not an individual investigation course, so that completion of the course is accurately reflected on the student's transcript.

  • Designated number: xxx96
  • Schedule type: individual investigation (IND)
  • Grade modes permitted: letter, satisfactory/unsatisfactory, in-progress*
  • Variable credit permitted: yes, between 1-3

International experience courses may have pre- and post-travel classroom study. Course activities include, but are not limited to, classroom study, research, fieldwork, internships and service learning. The course is created specifically for the study abroad experience; course content is not offered domestically and does not already have its own course number. The full title of the course includes the words “International Experience,” and, if variable title, the individual title of each offering begins with “Intl Exp:” in the Schedule of Classes and is printed on each student’s transcript. International experience variable offerings should be approved by the departmental curriculum committee and reviewed by the college curriculum committee before being scheduled.

  • Designated number: xxx89**
  • Schedule type: international experience (INT) course may also have pre-/post-travel lecture schedule type
  • Grade modes permitted: letter, satisfactory/unsatisfactory, in-progress*

LECTURE

A lecture is formalized instruction, conducted on- or off-campus (including educational field trips), in which the instructor presents an educational experience to students, applying any combination of instructional methods. This definition is applicable only when the course organization requires that the instructor bear the primary responsibility for the instructional activity and is directly involved with all the students in the class. Students will be expected to work on out-of-class assignments on a regular basis over the length of the course, which will normally average two hours of out-of-class study for each hour of formal class activity. This out-of-class study shall not be counted as part of the lecture hour for credit.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE
(INTERNSHIP, PRACTICUM, FIELD EXPERIENCE, STUDENT TEACHING, DIRECTED PRACTICE)

A practical experience is credit-bearing work experiences that are integrated with academic instruction and relate to an individual student’s occupational goal. Students concurrently apply learned concepts to practical situations within an occupational field under some degree of supervision. The experience is coordinated by a Kent State faculty member, who assists the student in planning the experience and assigns the course grade to the student after appropriate consultation with the employer/supervisor. The student is expected to complete pre-determined assignments. Examples may include a weekly journal, final paper and experience report. Whether the practical experience is paid or unpaid is determined by state or federal regulations, an accreditor or the employer in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act. The term used by a program to label its practice experience may vary in the course title to accommodate the differences in accreditation nomenclature.

SPECIAL TOPICS

Special topics courses are used to sample new offerings to determine whether or not formal adoption is desirable. Academic units may offer a specific topic under this course designation a maximum three times prior to full curricular review to become a regular course. Specific offerings under this course designation cannot be required in an academic program. The full title of the course includes the words “Special Topics,” and the individual title of each offering begins with “ST:” in the Schedule of Classes and is printed on each student’s transcript. Special topic offerings should be approved by the departmental curriculum committee and reviewed by the college curriculum committee before being scheduled.

The course is created specifically for the study away experience; course content is not offered on a Kent State campus/location and does not already have its own course number. Topics and/or content may be variable or relatively unchanged for each offering. The full title of the course includes the words “Study Away,” and, if variable title, the individual title of each offering begins with “Study Away:” in the Schedule of Classes and is printed on each student’s transcript. Study away variable offerings should be approved by the departmental curriculum committee and reviewed by the college curriculum committee before being scheduled.

  • Designated number: xxx90**
  • Schedule type: study away (STA) course may also have pre-/post-travel lecture schedule type
  • Grade modes permitted: letter, satisfactory/unsatisfactory, in-progress*
  • Variable credit permitted: yes, between 1-4
  • Credit-to-contact ratio: One credit hour is awarded for minimum one clock hour in a standard week of a 15-week semester, or for minimum 15 clock hours in a semester. No credit can be awarded for travel time.


WORKSHOP

A workshop is a brief, intensive and interactive educational activity, usually for a small group of people, in which the content is practical and concentrates on the acquisition of specific information or skills.

  • Credit-to-contact ratio: One credit hour is awarded for one nominal hour (50 clock minutes) in a standard week of a 15-week semester, or for 15 nominal hours (12.5 clock hours) in a semester.

WORKSHOP – VARIABLE TOPIC

Variable topic workshops are administered through the Office of Continuing and Distance Education and typically are directed toward professional renewal or to the mastery and application of knowledge and skills that address a narrowly defined range of problems or issues related to practice. Variable-topic workshops cannot be required in an academic program. A workshop that has relatively unchanging topics and is offered with regularity should be assigned an unreserved number (see definition above). The full title of the course includes the word “Workshop,” and the individual title of each offering begins with “WKSP:” in the Schedule of Classes and is printed on each student’s enrollee’s transcript. All initial workshop offerings should be approved by departmental curriculum committees and forwarded for review by college curriculum committees. The Ohio Department of Higher Education prohibits the awarding of graduate credit for only attendance at a conference or workshop.

  • Designated number: xxx93
  • Schedule type: workshop (WSP)
  • Grade modes permitted: satisfactory/unsatisfactory
  • Variable credit permitted: yes, between 1-6
  • Credit-to-contact ratio: One credit hour is awarded for one nominal hour (50 clock minutes) in a standard week of a 15-week semester, or for 15 nominal hours (12.5 clock hours) in a semester.

*  An in-progress mark may be permitted if there is an expectation that students will not be able to complete all assignments by the end of the course. Documentation is required for that mark consideration. An in-progress mark should not be confused with an incomplete mark, which is given to a student who—due to that student’s extenuating circumstance—is unable to complete the required work between the course withdrawal deadline and end of class.

** Any undergraduate course with the number xxx89, (international experience), xxx90 (study away), xxx92 (practical experience), xxx98 (research) or xxx99 (project or capstone) fulfills students’ experiential learning requirement (ELR). Developers of these courses do not need to request the attribute; it is assigned by Curriculum Services.
