General Education is a very important aspect of higher education. It provides guidelines to variety of disciplines via Student Learning Goals (SLGs). Course coordination strategies help different disciplines in implementing General Education SLGs. Many disciplines, especially in science and engineering go through accreditation processes. For instance, Computer Engineering Technology, is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The disciplines that go through accreditation must comply with a set of standards. In the process of implementing Course Coordination in Computer Engineering Technology we noticed that several of these standards were similar to the General Education SLGs. This paper proposes an initiative to bridge the gap between General Education and Engineering Technology through Course Coordination, and creates a framework for other disciplines to use as a model.
