eLearning Course Development
In order to support faculty and increase access to and enrollment in eLearning, the Center for eLearning requests faculty proposals for eLearning course development and delivery. Faculty selected in this process will receive a stipend of $3,000 to:
- complete a training program and develop an online course during Summer 2013.
- teach the newly developed course as an overload at least once by the end of Summer 2014. The overload instruction rate will be $6,000 for full-time faculty and $4,500 for part-time faculty.
The stipend will be distributed in two $1,500 payments. The first payment will be distributed the pay period following course completion. The second payment will be distributed the pay period after midterm when the newly developed course is offered the first time as overload.
The spring program consists of 6 units delivered over 12 weeks during Summer 2013 and includes 3 face-to-face meetings scheduled on Fridays 8 am - 5 pm. The remaining coursework will be completed online. To be successful in this course, we estimate that you will need to commit to 12 hours of work per week. Faculty can also receive up to 6 hours of individual assistance from instructional designers. Open lab hours with instructional designers will also be available.
Participants will need to confirm their working knowledge of Blackboard via two assessments prior to beginning the program. Instructions for these assessments and information on how to prepare for them will be forwarded to the selected candidates.
Proposals will be reviewed and priority given to:
- High demand courses with consistent enrollment demand over the last three years including summers
- Courses that are deemed strategic in planning eLearning degree programs
- Courses that are part of an existing eLearning plan within your College/School/Department.
Faculty interested in developing courses via distance must complete the above form. The completed and signed form is to be submitted to:
Dr. Monica Orozco
Assistant Provost for eLearning
The deadline for proposals complete with required signatures is Friday, April 1 at noon.
