Standard (Default course type - No designation needed)
Standard iSchool courses may be lecture, discussion, or a combination of the two. They include 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- or variable credit, on campus and online courses.
Labs and Studios
Laboratory and studio courses in the iSchool include hands-on instruction and training and require a significant amount of instructional support for setup, programming, and evaluation. They are often IT intensive and sometimes focus on a real-world problem or case. Classes may be held in the CU Community FabLab or flexible classroom space and sometimes include field work.
Undergraduate and Master’s Seminar
Seminar courses are discussion based and usually have a lower total enrollment to ensure maximum student participation. Lower-level Undergraduate Open Seminars use the IS 199 number.
Project courses include a student-driven research project where a substantial amount of the grade is based on an individual or group-based research-driven assessment. Bioinformatics-IS students must complete at least one of these courses.
Capstone courses integrate outcomes from several prerequisite courses and provide a culminating assessment of student learning.
Writing-Intensive (Undergraduate General Education Courses ONLY)
The “Writing-Intensive” modifier is only applicable to Undergraduate (100-300 level) courses that have been approved as Composition 1 or Advanced Composition courses by the University General Education Board. Guidelines on General Education Courses can be found here: https://uofi.app.box.com/s/x4oqfuosx8jslad1pt2qnvud5tt52w7l
