Online Course Redesign (OCR)

Background

The Online Course Redesign (OCR) provides individual support to faculty members who are redesigning a significant portion of existing online course. 

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. 

Funding

Several applicants will be founded for the academic year. Participants will receive a dollar amount 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.

Who Can Participate?

To participate in the OCR program, a course must be taught online at least 3 times from its initial development or at least 3 times since it was last redesigned in the OCR.

Application Review

The Faculty and Academic Staff Development Board will review all applications. Applications will be evaluated on the connection to the redesigns focus and the total anticipated impact on student learning.

Applications addressing elements of the Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP) initiative are preferred. Go to http://www.aacu.org/leap/link for more information on the LEAP initiative.
