Academy of Culinary Arts Department
CULN160-Introduction to Culinary Arts/Bilingual Spanish
Pilot course for Department of Labor program to provide casino employees with advancement opportunities. If the pilot works, ACA can provide course material for six of our existing culinary courses.
The course is similar to CULN101-Introduction to Culinary Arts but with a Spanish presentation. The committee decided to give the bilingual Spanish course the alpha CULS to differentiate it from the CULN courses.
The committee also reworded the course description to: “For Spanish-speaking hospitality workers with limited English proficiency to gain knowledge and skills to further their careers in the foodservice industry.”
ACA Workshop - The chair asked Kelly McClay to give him some dates for a workshop for culinary faculty.
The institution’s educational offerings display academic content, rigor, and coherence that are appropriate to its higher education mission. The institution identifies student learning goals and objectives, including knowledge and skills, for its educational offerings. When compiling date we should provide both quantitative and anecdotal evidence. (per Katz, VanEpps)
