Main content for "Design and Develop Awards for Individual Courses"

Individual course development projects include:

  1. New governance-approved courses developed for existing undergraduate or graduate degree or certificate programs
  2. Existing governance-approved undergraduate and graduate courses currently taught in one delivery mode and being revised for another or multi-modal delivery.

Proposals are submitted by faculty as subject matter experts (SME) with approval of their Department Head, Chair of School (If applicable) and Dean or Assoc./Asst. Dean. Project proposal must include plan for allowing faculty as course developer to invest the required time for the development project.

In addition, the Department Head must commit to offering the course at least three times after development is completed.

Upon completion of the course development project, the faculty developer must commit to review and approval by Department Head prior to teaching the course for the first time. The faculty developer is also asked to present the completed course in a showcase event.

All proposals must be accompanied by current and the original governance-approved syllabus for the existing course. As we are mindful of the requirements of external accreditation and internal governance, significant variances between the original syllabus and the current syllabus will be discussed with the Department Head to determine the syllabus to be used for the funded project.
