Series consists of records relating to credit and non-credit instruction offered by the School and its predecessors. Activities, events and topics documented include the evaluation of courses, new course proposals, curriculum rationalization and scheduling, development of Continuing Education courses, cross-listed courses with other departments, Programs of Distinction, Programs of Excellence, seminar and colloquium series, high school computer course development, the Summer Computing Institute, workshops, and the graduate and undergraduate program.
Records include correspondence, reports, course files, working papers, policies, lecture schedules and outlines, reading lists, student self-study guides and handbooks, assignments and essay questions, final exams, directed studies proposals and teaching evaluation summaries.
Some teaching material has been retained (e.g. glossaries, lecture notes), but reprints of articles have not been preserved. The sub-series on "Course files" does not include course administrative records (e.g. enrollment lists, book requisition forms, grade change forms, registration status reports, waiting lists, add/drop forms, lab fee notices). Note that record types found in the files vary considerably from course to course.
