The Center for the Skills & Experience Flags is pleased to announce a call for proposals for $2,000 course development awards to support instructors across campus as they convert a face-to-face flagged course to the online environment. The purpose of these funds is to support faculty through the process of converting an existing course to an online format, while maintaining or strengthening the Flag component of the course in light of the many ways in which an online course differs from the in-person course you were planning on when the course was first flagged.
All interested instructors should complete the online course development award application by 6:00 p.m. Thursday, July 9. Awardees will be notified beginning Monday, July 13.

For each award, $2,000 in course development funds will be transferred to the instructor’s department for the instructor’s use, to support costs associated with course development (i.e. salary supplement, books, training or research expenses, technology costs, etc.). Note that instructors should check with their department’s accountant to ensure that funds may be used for the desired purpose, as different units have different policies. If funds are used for a salary supplement, fringe and taxes will be deducted from the $2,000 award.
