he due date for proposals for our upcoming spring Hybrid Faculty Learning Community has been extended to Monday, January 22nd.
The Center for Teaching and Learning will provide $1,250 in professional development fundsto instructors who fully participate in the Spring Hybrid Faculty Learning Community in Spring 2018 and redesign an established Corvallis campus course as a hybrid course that will be offered for the first time as a hybrid in Summer or Fall 2018 or Winter 2019. If a team develops a course, the $1,250 will be equally split among team members. Preference will be given for large-enrollment Bacc Core courses, though all proposals will be considered.
Hybrid courses designed through the Hybrid Professional Learning Community will serve on-site students, and adhere to the regular on-campus (not Ecampus) tuition structure. It is anticipated that each new hybrid section will replace an existing fully classroom-based section and be offered at least once a year.
The learning community will blend 5 face-to-face meetings with online activities. Meetings will be Weds., 2:00-3:30 p.m., on Apr. 11 and 25, May 9 and 23, and June 6. Instructors and tenured/tenure-track faculty in at least their second year of teaching at OSU are eligible to participate.
The proposal guidelines are attached.
