SCHEDULE PRODUCTION AND CLASSROOM SCHEDULING

INFORMATION YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK!


PRODUCTION PROCESS

Two productions each academic year

  • Spring

  • Summer-Fall


Lets talk definitions and terminology

  • What is a distribution?

  • What is a priority classroom?

  • What are cross listed classes?

  • What are cross referenced classes?

  • What is text?

  • What is POT?

  • What are the deadlines?

  • What is the scheduling pattern?


What is a Distribution?

  • A distribution is an Excel spreadsheet. Each department receives its own distribution. The 1st Distribution will contain information on classes that were offered by that department in the corresponding term of the previous academic year.

  • Following directions located on the Registrar’s website, each department makes changes to its distribution.

    The next slide is an example of a 1st Distribution.


  • Some departments have “priority” classrooms.

  • If a department does not use its priority classrooms on the 1st Distribution, the Registrar’s Office will assign a class to that room.

  • The official classroom/lab list indicates the

    department that has priority of a classroom. This list is located at:

    http://www.ipfw.edu/registrar/faculty/schedule.shtml

    (see handout )


What Are Cross Listed Classes?

Classes are cross listed when more than one section meets in the same room, same time, same day with the same instructor.


What is Cross Referencing?

  • Cross Referencing is used to display a class under multiple departmental headings. For example, a course displays under English and under History in the printed schedule, on the public site, and/or on myIPFW.


What is text?

Any verbiage, usually explanatory, that appears in the printed Schedule, or on the public or myIPFW displays of the Schedule.

An example of text is “Signature Of Instructor And Department Chair Required”


What is a Part of Term (POT) code?

  • Part of term codes are utilized to standardize the dates for full semester sections, as well as sections that meet within pre-defined periods of time within a semester.

  • A part of term is created by the Registrar’s Office.

  • A part of term is identified for each course section based on the course dates.


What is a part of term code? (cont)

  • Example: A course section runs from January 11 through March 7. Upon request, the Registrar’s Office creates a part of term code. In this case, 7A was the code created for this period of time during the pertinent 16-week full term.

  • Such a section would require a special POT set up. Requests for special POTs are entered on the distribution.

    (see handout)


DEADLINES

  • It is very important to meet deadlines: See Production Schedule located at:

    http://www.ipfw.edu/registrar/faculty/schedule.shtml

    Deadline 1 – May 7 – 1st distribution due back to Registrar

    Deadline 2 – July 9 – 2nd distribution due back to Registrar

    Deadline 3 – September 7 – final proofing

  • There are over 30 departments receiving the 1st and 2nd Distributions for the schedule of classes

  • In order to provide a professional document which represents IPFW positively, our goal is to have a consistent campus wide timeline which meets the requirements of our publications office and external printing vendor. (see Production Schedule Handout)


1st Distribution

  • The 1st Distribution is a document that contains the courses offered in the most recent “like” term. Spring 2010 Spring 2011

  • Each course section is assigned a new CRN as part of the process with the section information duplicated from the previous “like” term.

  • Therefore, the 1st Distribution displays course sections previously offered. Except for the CRN, changes can be requested for class offerings in the new semester.


Directions for the 1st Distribution

You will receive the 1st Distribution electronically.

The 1st Distribution will include courses offered through the Division of Continuing Studies.

To make changes to the 1st Distribution follow the directions on the 1st distribution memo located at:

http://www.ipfw.edu/registrar/faculty/schedule.shtml

Exceptions to the Class Scheduling Pattern must be approved by the Dean/Director of your academic unit and by the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs. Otherwise, sections with days and meeting times that deviate from the Class Scheduling Pattern will not be processed.
