Distance Education Course Development Funding
The Center for Distance Education (CDE) is inviting faculty to submit proposals to transform an existing face-to-face/on-campus course to either a fully online or hybrid/blended course. Please drop-off your completed and signed applications by April 19th, Friday, at 5:00 p.m. to Cathy Dale at NS 244.
Since Fall 2007, CDE has funded faculty to transform 96 existing on-campus/face-to-face courses into either a fully online or hybrid/blended course. The CDE course development committee reviews each proposal for approval. No other review of course transformation from an existing on-campus course to an online course is required for course development funding.
The CDE receives many student inquires about online course offerings at IU South Bend. This will only increase with the recent IU Office of Online Education’s initiatives. Currently, CDE staff refers these students to other IU campuses to enroll in their online sections when our faculty do not offer those courses online. Thus, to retain students at IU South Bend, we need to offer more online courses. If you or your colleagues would like to know more about how to transform an existing course to fully online or hybrid/blended, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Marianne Castano Bishop (firstname.lastname@example.org or x4543) who will be more than happy to work with you.
Faculty stipends for fully online course development are:
- $4,000 for a 3-credit (or more) course
- $3,000 for a 2-credit course
- $2,000 for a 1-credit course
Hybrid/blended course development funding is 50% of fully online course.
