Provost Announces Request for Proposals: Hybrid Learning and MOOCs

by | Dec 9, 2016

The Office of the Provost, Columbia University, has announced a Request for Proposals (RFPs) for funding opportunities for Columbia faculty who are looking to integrate new educational technologies into their classroom and online teaching and MOOCs.

Hybrid Learning Course Redesign and Delivery

The Hybrid Learning Course Redesign and Delivery grant program provides support for faculty who are developing innovative and technology-rich pedagogy and learning strategies in the classroom. Instructors of courses selected will have access to the resources and support of the Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) for content development, instructional design, media production, systems integration, assessment, and project management.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

The Office of the Provost will also support open online courses taught by Columbia faculty via a Request for Proposals for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Courses offered through MOOC platforms have the potential to reach large audiences across the globe, to stimulate curiosity and intellectual exploration, to make more visible the teaching and research activities of the University, and to promote public engagement.
