The Online Course Redesign (OCR) provides funding and instructional support for faculty and instructional academic staff members interested in reconstructing a significant portion of a course currently offered online. Applicants should clearly identify a significant teaching or student learning challenge that currently exists in a course and provide a detailed plan for redesigning the course to address the issue. Applications addressing elements of the Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) initiative are preferred.
Participants receive $750 per credit for the course being redesigned. If required for the project, additional one-time funding (under $250) is available for equipment (microphone, digital camera, etc.) or software (screen recording software, etc.). Funding is provided when the redesigned course is offered online.
Faculty/Academic Instructional Staff who teach a course that has been offered online at least 3 times from its initial development or at least 3 times since it was last redesigned in the OCR.
