Michelle Richards-Babb
27:04
Question: When you say chemistry degrees, does that include ACS certified biochemistry degrees or non-certified biochemistry degrees?
Felicia Fullilove
27:52
Yes
Michelle Richards-Babb
28:14
In what year do you provide the faculty avg salaries, 2020-21 or 2021-22?
Christina Wilburn
28:21
Each having our own login, would we have access to the same information when we log in?
Felicia Fullilove
28:42
@Christina yes everyone will see the same thing
Christina Wilburn
28:55
Okay great, thank you!
Roseann K Sachs
28:57
We are small enough that some of these salaries are for one person - which is generally considered confidential information.
Roseann K Sachs
29:25
I actually don’t know this information, unless I ask.
Christine Pastorek
31:16
Oregon State has several campuses, do we include enrollments for all campuses?
Debbie Bebout
31:33
Does "in all undergraduate Chemistry courses" mean sum of enrollments or number of individual students (eg. student in lab and lecture counts as one or two)?
Felicia Fullilove
31:52
sum enrollments
Shelley Foster
32:17
Our biochemistry degree is a joint degree shared by us and biology - do I count all of them?
Felicia Fullilove
32:37
@shelley you can add those graduates
Anne Kondo
33:48
Do I restrict my answer to faculty who teach chemistry or biochemistry? My dept. also includes Physics,
Felicia Fullilove
34:29
Anne only your chemistry and biochemistry faculty, unless there are physics faculty teaching chemistry courses
Fehmi Damkaci
34:29
we have visiting faculty but has been with us for five years and attends all meetings and does research; should include as full time based on your definition
Qingfeng Ge
35:51
How do we count faculty with cross-appointment, e.g. 50-50 split between chemistry and science education?
Felicia Fullilove
36:24
Part-time
Felicia Fullilove
37:50
Part-time faulty is specifically for individuals with joint appointments across departments (independent units)
Qingfeng Ge
38:17
thanks
Christina Wilburn
38:53
Is there a chart or something that clarifies each of these categories?
Christine Pastorek
38:59
if Biochemistry faculty teach course we apply to the BS biochemistry - ACS approved -but they are not faculty in Chemistry department - are they listed in the Temporary Faculty even if they are full time teaching in the Biochemistry department ?
Fehmi Damkaci
40:32
our labs are taught by TAs, should we add them as temporary faculty?
Felicia Fullilove
40:35
Christine, you may not need to list them at all. I would need to look at your situation specifically
Felicia Fullilove
40:42
No @Fehmi
Christina Wilburn
40:47
Thank you
Felicia Fullilove
41:17
We ask about TA's later in the report, you do not need to list them as temp faculty. Typically, you'll list the full-time faculty member that supervises the lab
Debbie Bebout
42:46
Do full time roles in institutionsal administration count as "leaves of absence"?
Felicia Fullilove
44:02
@Debbie is there an expectation that the faculty member will return to the department?
Debbie Bebout
44:16
yes
Felicia Fullilove
44:23
Then yes
Michelle Richards-Babb
44:35
So, previous 6 years would be 2015-2016 to 2020-2021.
Felicia Fullilove
45:10
2016-2017 - 2021-2022
Michelle Richards-Babb
45:42
Thank you.
Annette Moser Lintz
49:26
For the instrumentation. If an individual faculty member has their own instrument from grant funding, should it be listed here as well?
Sheila Quigley
49:49
How do you handle instrumentation not owned by the dept but used by our faculty?
Michelle Richards-Babb
51:11
What if the research instrumentation is potentially used by students when engaged in undergraduate research?
Michelle Richards-Babb
52:18
Thank you, makes sense.
Sheila Quigley
53:24
how should we handle instrumentation that is on order and due in before the end of the AY
Sheila Quigley
53:50
Thank you
Shelley Foster
59:10
what about graduate courses?
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
59:11
Do the courses not import over from the annual reports?
Felicia Fullilove
59:19
Graduate courses are not included
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
01:00:02
One can only hope...
Robin Lammi
01:00:39
We have some tracks for which all students earn ACS certification and other tracks that CAN lead to ACS-certified degrees IF students complete additional requirements (e.g., Research). Should we include those tracks, or not?
Fehmi Damkaci
01:01:22
all faculty means full time faculty only, or includes temporary faculty?
Felicia Fullilove
01:01:25
@Robin this can be tricky. Yes add those courses, but make sure you identify which courses must be taken for it to be ACS Approved
Felicia Fullilove
01:02:05
@Fehmi - all faculty, including temps. Does the average contact hours equal 11 or less
Qingfeng Ge
01:02:25
For a course with built-in lab component, do we count the lab portion in contact hours?
Felicia Fullilove
01:02:51
yes
Shelley Foster
01:04:03
what is the biological macromolecule requirement?
Felicia Fullilove
01:04:59
@Shelley that is a part of the Macromolecular, Supramolecular, and Nanoscale System requirement
Felicia Fullilove
01:05:07
you can read more here - https://www.acs.org/content/dam/acsorg/about/governance/committees/training/acsapproved/degreeprogram/macromolecular-supramolecular-nanoscale-supplement.pdf
Shelley Foster
01:05:24
thank you
Shelley Foster
01:06:01
so we just note part of that requirement?
Michelle Richards-Babb
01:06:32
For courses that meet for 50 minutes, MWF, it looks like it is ok to round to 1 hour and report hours per week as 3 and 45 for the semester. Is that correct?
Felicia Fullilove
01:06:36
yes. for the biological macromolecular requirement you just check which course meets
Felicia Fullilove
01:07:37
@Michelle, yes
Michelle Steiger
01:08:20
What should you put if there is no lab manual required and all lab materials are instructor written?
Debbie Bebout
01:11:59
Is research expected to have a foundation course prerequisite?
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
01:12:09
All exams from a course, or just a representative one?
Felicia Fullilove
01:12:19
@Debbie - no
Felicia Fullilove
01:12:26
@Betsy - All exams
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
01:12:33
Thanks!
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
01:15:36
Could you go over the distributed MSN coverage too please?
Betsy Raymond (she/her)
01:15:55
Sounds great!
Carla Gallagher
01:16:06
Do we submit all exams for a course, or just 1 example from each course
Felicia Fullilove
01:16:25
@Carla - All exams for a course
Roseann K Sachs
01:17:36
If it is not counted towards lab or in-depth courses, then do we submit papers?
Felicia Fullilove
01:19:05
@Roseann can you explain a little more?
Roseann K Sachs
01:19:29
If we aren’t counting research towards the lab hours, or as an in-depth course (have that covered), then do we submit student research papers?
Felicia Fullilove
01:19:43
No you do not
Felicia Fullilove
01:20:14
you only need to submit research reports if research is required to meet lab hours or in-depth course requirement
Michelle Richards-Babb
01:22:39
What would you predict is the average amount of time a single person spends on completing and submitting this report?
Felicia Fullilove
01:23:14
It really depends Michelle. We typically advise that an individual collects all of the necessary documents
Felicia Fullilove
01:23:29
beforehand. Most people work on it in small chunks
Roseann K Sachs
01:26:10
Is this contact hour section for the most recent year?
Fehmi Damkaci
01:27:01
what if a faculty taught 12 hrs only for a semester, but usually teaches 9?
Felicia Fullilove
01:27:14
@Roseann yes
Felicia Fullilove
01:28:37
@Fehmi - if the average number of faculty contact hours is under 11 you will not need to complete the contact hour table. If it is over 11, you'll complete it. The contact hour refers to the most recent academic year 2021-2022. So even if a person typically teaches less than 12, but is teaching 12 in 2021-2022 you'll need to report it
Michelle Richards-Babb
01:31:28
What if the faculty member is overseeing 8 lab sections (6 rooms of 24 students for each) of the same course that meet at eight different times , but has GTAs in each lab room and a GTA who walks around the lab rooms for each lab section meeting. How would that count in terms of contact hours.
Felicia Fullilove
01:32:50
Data Page: https://sites.google.com/view/approval-program-data/home
Roseann K Sachs
01:32:52
I thought 11 was the number
Felicia Fullilove
01:33:09
11 or less you do not need to report
Michelle Richards-Babb
01:33:41
If the faculty member "teaches" a class associated with training the graduate and undergraduate lab teaching assistants, I assume that counts as teaching.
Felicia Fullilove
01:34:39
@Michelle yes
Fehmi Damkaci
01:35:09
do we need to submit exams for those distributed courses even though they were submitted in regular exams sections?
Kim Bagley
01:35:25
Do we consider the exact minutes when answering 12 contact hours or less?
Becky Corbin
01:36:20
Regarding the contact hour calculation, should time in UG research courses be included?
Becky Corbin
01:37:06
Thank you! This session has been very helpful.
Shelley Foster
01:37:22
thank you!

Fehmi Damkaci
01:38:01
students are required for 400 level electives, but these are keep changing year to year, should we report these courses as in depth?
Felicia Fullilove
01:38:42
Yes list them as in-depth if they have a foundation course as a pre-req
