1 December 2015

Memo To: The Loyola Schools Community
From: John Paul C. Vergara, PhD.
Vice President for the Loyola Schools
Subject: Change in the Loyola Schools Monday to Friday Class Schedules Effective Second Semester of School Year 2015-2016

This is to inform the Loyola Schools Community that in consultation with the student body and with the community in the regular School Forum on 9 October 2015, the Loyola Schools Administrative Council in its meeting on 6 November 2015 approved for pilot implementation the change in the Monday to Friday class schedules in the second semester of SY 2015-2016 as detailed below.

With the start of regular classes at 8:00 a.m., Physical Education (PE) classes will start at 7:30 a.m. M-W-F classes will still be 1-hour per session and T-TH classes still at 1.5 hours per session. A new M-F early evening time slot for undergraduate classes is scheduled from 6:30-8:00 p.m. All evening classes will still end no later than 9:00 p.m.

I am requesting the undergraduate students to communicate this new schedule with their parents/guardians, especially the change in the students’ activity hour from 4:30-6:00 p.m. to 5:00-6:30 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays.

Thank you very much for your kind attention.

Memo on Course syllabus for Loyola Schools

Beginning this Summer SY 2014-2015, please take note of the following important reminders regarding the syllabi for courses under the Loyola Schools:

  • All course syllabi must follow the specified format that was discussed during the Outcomes-Based Syllabus Writing Workshop last 26 November 2013 and in the afternoon of Faculty Day last 6 December 2013.
  • Course syllabi should have learning outcomes, class requirements, timetables, and evaluative criteria spelled out.
  • Each class is expected to have a course syllabus.
  • For core courses, the learning outcomes of the same course are expected to be the same across the classes and the methods of assessment must be comparable.
  • Each slash course should have a separate course syllabus. The course syllabus should have its own course description, learning outcomes, course requirements, and grading system that are appropriate for the undergraduate, master’s, or doctoral level.
  • Reference materials must be updated. Include journal articles and online reference materials where applicable.
  • The faculty member is expected to write a syllabus for each of his or her classes and submit the syllabus to the Chair/Program Director for checking before the start of classes every term.

A separate announcement will be made regarding the uploading of soft copies of the course syllabi to AISIS in time for First Semester SY 2014-2015.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
