  1. 1. I am registered in EDACE 818 Social Foundations, class # 16419. In ISIS the instructor is listed as Dr. Royce Ann Collins. Here, the instructor is listed as Dr. Susan Yelich Biniecki. Which professor is going to be the instructor? Also, I already bought the texts for this course; will the texts remain the same regardless of who the instructor is?
    2. I am also registered in EDACE 765 Adult Learning and Integrating Technology into the Curriculum, class # 16414. This course does not show up on the Varney’s site for texts. Is this temporary? Will the text requirements eventually be listed?

    • 1. For the course to be entered in iSIS an instructor’s name had to be attached, which is why Dr. Collins’ name was entered. The instructor will indeed be Dr. Susan Yelich Biniecki. She will begin at K-State in August and we should be able to change the iSIS system by October. The textbooks will not change.
      2. I will let Dr. Kang know that his textbooks are not in Varney’s database. You can also email him and request the textbook information.
      Thanks for your questions.
