Online Course Development

The College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) in partnership with the Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL) seeks proposals for the development of high-quality online courses to be offered during the 2016 Summer Session  (June 20, 2016 – July 30, 2016) with the goal of increasing fully online offerings at Cal State LA. To ensure consistency and follow best practices in online course development, an assigned instructional designer will work with faculty to identify and/or develop content and activities appropriate for online learners. Classes that are redesigned for online delivery for the self-support Summer Session may be utilized by departments during their state-supported academic year.

Eligible Applicants
All college and academic departments are invited to submit proposals. Before submitting proposals, faculty should first consult with their department chairs to ensure that online course development is supported by the department. College Deans or their designee must also support these efforts.

Instructors’ expertise and experience will be vital not only for course content but also to create appropriate activities and assignments that meet course and lesson learning objectives

Faculty teams are welcome to submit proposals for pairs of courses that are prerequisites, linked, or sequenced in some way.

All proposals must be submitted using the online form found at the website below:

A course conversion stipend of $5,000.00 for a 4-unit course will be provided for developing the course. These funds are to support faculty participation in providing course content and working with the course development team on course design and production.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Monday, October 12, 2015.
