At U of C we are proposing some writing courses which will be linked to
others discipline based courses in fairly close partnership. Not a
radical concept but new to us here.
I have been asked what happens if a students fails one or the other of
the courses. Must she then repeat both? I can see logistical and
pedagogical difficulties either way.
Have other instirutions tried linked courses and if so how have they
solved this problem?
A reply by 2:30 Thursday MST would be nice (that's when I have to defend
this proposal before General Faculties Council).
