In attendance: Peter Pfeifer, University of Missouri, Columbia

Bernard J. Feldman, University of Missouri-St. Louis Dan G. Waddill, Missouri S & T Robert C. Riggs, University of Missouri-Kansas City Sunder Balasubramanian, Lincoln University Ian Lindevald, Truman State University Dave Probst, Southeast Missouri State University Roger Chelf, Missouri Southern State University David M. Cornelison, Missouri State University March March 2013 2013 TLTC TLTC 2013 2013 66 MACE MPC Participation in the collaboration is strictly voluntary. A department may decide to participate in all, some or none of the collaborative courses. By participating as a receiving institution, there is no obligation to be an offering institution In the Fall of 2011, Dr. A. Yamilov of the Missouri S & T will offer a course to all Missouri public universities on Nanostructures: An Introduction. In the Spring of 2012, Dr. David Probst of Southeast Missouri State University will offer a course on Optics Students at receiving universities will register at their home institutions and pay tuition for these courses to their home institutions. No money will be transferred between universities. Each department is responsible for creating a

course number, title and description for their own catalogue, schedule and student transcripts March March 2013 2013 TLTC TLTC 2013 2013 77 MACE MPC Each receiving university will appoint a faculty member from their own department who will have a role in the administration of the course. At a minimum, this faculty member will deal with arranging and proctoring exams, student complaints and grievances, technological problems, and advising of their own students The students will be bound by all the rules and dates of their home institution, including admission and drop rules and dates The academic calendar and technology used for these courses will be chosen by the institution offering the collaborative course, in consultation with the other institutions March March 2013 2013

TLTC TLTC 2013 2013 88 MACE MPC All the students in these collaborative courses will be evaluated. The evaluation questions and process will be determined at a later date through an exchange of emails The second Missouri Physics Collaboration meeting will be held no later than December, 3, 2011 The instructor of the collaborative course will grade all homework and exams and determine the final grades for all students participating in the class, using the same standard for all students March March 2013 2013 TLTC TLTC 2013 2013 99 Outline
