Online Course Development Grant
The purpose of this $2000 grant is to support the development of new online courses to be taught in the Summer. Courses can be an adapted version of a regularly-offered face-to-face course, or a new course entirely. Faculty who are awarded the grant are obligated to: 1) provide a preliminary course syllabus by Friday, January 31, 2014 for linking to the summer course schedule; 2) attend a meeting/workshop with the Director of the Center for Digital Media to coordinate technology support; 3) offer the course in one of the summer sessions immediately following the awarding of the grant. (Department Chairs will need to approve offering the course for it to be on the Summer schedule.) The application deadline is Friday, November 15, 2013. A copy of the final syllabus and a brief report on how the class fared is due to the Center for Faculty Development on August 31, 2014.
