I think, as Talossan is a practical qualification, I think a simple diploma after passing an exam in a certain level of the language would be more appropriate than having a credit based system for Talossan courses.
Like I do a course in what the CUG defines as Level 1 Talossan. I take the exam, and I walk out with a GDTL Level 1. That way I'm now ready for being recognised as a speaker of Level 1 Talossan straight away.
As Hooligan is the only Talossan teacher here at the moment, I'd like to hear his opinion.
Why can't each course earn a "Certificate of Completion" AND some credits, so that if you complete one course, you still get to enjoy the certificate, but if you complete a whole course of studies, you can get the diploma?

These are great ideas. A course completion certificate would be nice to have since the college (for now) does not offer enough courses for one to earn a diploma. I would like to hear the opinions of the registrar, Flip Molinar, and also past and present professors, including Lord Hooligan.

I for one, love this idea. As the regent has said, this will provide us with an avenue to reward and recognize those students who have performed at an extraordinarily high level, at least until the size of our course catalog grows sufficiently enough to allow the granting of diplomas in particular areas of study.

I will (as long as someone reminds me) be happy to issue Certificates of Completion for those who satisfactorily complete the "Introduction to the Talossan Language" course that will be getting underway shortly.
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Seriously, win or lose - and I'm not confident of the vote in Florencia at least - the process has mapped out how provincial mergers (a much talked-about-but-nothing-done subject) can proceed in future.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: If the MM and VD legislatures agree on a constitution for a united province, I would support the enabling legislation in the Ziu.

Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Provincial referendums to ratify (like for FL/FV) are not strictly legally/Organically necessary but I think we've set a good democratic precedent for them.

Eðo Grischun: There wasn't enough support for a merger of MM-VD last time the topic came up. I don't think anything has changed. Notably, it wasn't just Tories standing against the idea at the time as V was dead-set against it.

Eðo Grischun: Maybe those discussion will restart now that Epic is back around.

Eðo Grischun: Miestra: Yes, the precedent has been set and I agree that is a big positive. I still don't like that the Ziu needs an enabling Act though. Gives me similar feelings to when Scotland needs England's permission to hold referendums.

Eðo Grischun: I do recognise the difference. Talossan provinces aren't States, countries or nations in their own right. So, it makes sense for the Ziu to control their actions. However, it still stings to think that two provinces could...

Eðo Grischun: vote affirmative to merge with overwhelming majorities, yet the Ziu could still say no. They probably wouldn't, but the ability exists.
Sept 20, 2019 8:43:08 GMT -6
Eðo Grischun: Anyway. Whatever the result of the current referendum, I think we should all celebrate the democratic exercise that has taken place. The ability to speak our minds on self determination without violent means is worth applauding.

Magniloqueu Épiqeu da Lhiun: Etho, not sure I will seriously go back into politics; meseems that Talossa is missing professional culturicians, and I am looking forward to working in that direction. Speaking of which: A CROATIAN REFERENCE GRAMMAR IN TALOSSAN IS IN THE MAKINGS...
