Description: The HI-QLT Course Redesign program encourages faculty to expand their online teaching skills within a project-based faculty development community.The redesign team is encouraged to also engage in, and complete, the CEETL offerings described above to inform their redesign projects and deepen their HI-QLT faculty learning community.

Funding for these projects was prioritized in terms of potential positive impact on student success related to high enrollment numbers, large equity gaps, high DFWs, critical courses for progress to degree, or courses that are really difficult to teach in an online environment. Course releases, equipment, student assistant salaries, or other items beyond the faculty development stipends were not eligible for funding. 

Redesign teams will:

  • Work together to adapt and develop student engagement and assessment activities for online modalities;
  • Apply inclusive, anti-racist, and liberatory pedagogies in support of student success to this redesign;
  • Offer ongoing support to members of the course redesign teams; and
  • Celebrate successes, share course materials, teaching strategies and approaches.

Criteria for completion of stipend payment: 

  • Submit examples of activities and assessments from their redesigned course, or series of courses;
  • Submit a reflection on your individual process and student success considerations, to be reviewed by a CEETL Faculty Mentor.
