FDIP Criteria considered for FY 2012 - 2013
Selection of a grant proposal will be based on how the proposal addresses these four criteria for post-baccalaureate/master's programs for the adult/professional market.
- Improve the quality of learning
- Help the university better address high-demand post-baccalaureate/master's-level courses/certificates/degrees;
- Provide greater flexibility for students to access instruction through innovative delivery methods. Courses developed under this initiative may also help serve student populations at regional campuses; and
- Increase student enrollment.
In addition, successful proposals should also address the following:
- Sustainability of the course
- Cost of the project relative to its goals; and
- How the experience of participating in this initiative can be shared with the University community.
Commitment:Faculty members who receive funding from this initiative agree to actively participate in the development of their course and/or program. This effort will require a commitment of time on the part of the faculty and (if applicable) their assistants. The development process will be completed in collaboration with instructional design teams assigned after acceptance of the award. Each faculty member who receives an award will:
- Attend a Summer Institute for Online Learning scheduled for May 14- 15.
- Collaborate regularly through monthly meetings scheduled with the assigned development team during course design/development;
- Create course content and /or repurpose existing materials in a
manner consistent with current best practices. This should include:
- Online course lecture material
- Integration of text and multimedia, as appropriate
- Development of interactive modules and activities
- Development of sound assessments.
- Complete development of project according to established timelines and deliver the courses(s) as scheduled. (NOTE: if development and delivery timelines are not met, the project will be ended and remaining funds will be returned to the Office of the Provost.)
- Participate in events to share experiences with other faculty and peers in workshops and events sponsored by UH.
