Propose a New DE Course
Propose a New DE Course
Utah Valley University invites submission of innovative and well-conceived proposals for development of Distance Education courses that extend access to education for new and diverse student populations.
To qualify for consideration, courses must have been previously approved by the Curriculum Committee and their development endorsed by the department chair.
Except when grant monies and/or faculty release time is involved, Distance Education will typically cover all course development costs - no financial commitment is expected of schools or departments.
New Course Development Incentive
“Wolverine Green” and “Wolverine Gold” designated courses offer robust and interactive online educational experiences for UVU students. Faculty are eligible for an online course development incentive if their course meets the Wolverine Green or Wolverine Gold criteria. There is no qualitative difference between a Green or Gold course. A Wolverine Gold designation is reserved for large enrollment courses or bottleneck courses as determined by the office of Academic Affairs. These courses are generally taught by a large adjunct pool and thus require thoughtful design regarding content stability while at the same time using interactive media and technologies to engage and assess students in large course sections.
A detailed list of Wolverine Green/Gold development criteria is available for download [here]. DE can answer any questions you might have about Wolverine Green/Gold status.Note: Courses that consist primarily of "e-Packs," online textbooks, or third-party-produced online content are not eligible for the DE development incentive.
Faculty who deliver courses through Distance Education may be eligible for a Delivery Incentive. See the Distance Education Compensation document [link] for details. All curriculum and scheduling decisions are made by the academic departments.
DE echoes the University’s commitment to academic freedom and the protection of the intellectual property interests of all concerned in the development of course materials to be delivered through DE technologies. As such, materials developed for DE delivery are bound by the University’s policy on intellectual property (#136).
The following benchmarks are used to ensure timely development and delivery:
