Planning on submitting a proposal? Getting Started

Do I need to submit a delivery proposal? (and other FAQ's).

  1. For any online/hybrid course for which you are planning to teach for the first time during Spring 2017 or later, the deadline for submitting proposals is Friday 9/30. Proposals received after that deadline we will NOT be able to provide any review or recommendations for Spring 2017.  

  2. Review the Online/Hybrid Course Proposal Process. You can click on the proposal form itself to get an idea of the tasks, consultations, and write-ups you will need to do. If this is your first proposal submitted to the COOL, please note the last section, which explains that you will need to develop a course site for review near the end of the semester.

  3. Note that the deadline to submit proposals is tentatively scheduled for late September. This could be an initial draft, and is what you will use to share with colleagues and be reviewed by your division dean for approval. View a general calendar of the process (dates are approximate).

  4. Thinking of submitting a proposal? Submit the short Intent to Submit an Online/Hybrid Proposal to give the COOL a "heads up" that your proposal will be submitted. Please submit this by September 15.

  5. If you are planning on teaching in online or hybrid delivery for Spring 2017 or later, you are welcome to begin the proposal process at any time by submitting a draft of your proposal by way of the proposal form listed below.

  6. You'll note that the first component in the process is your own skills development and research. If you are planning to teach your proposed course using Blackboard, please be sure to check out Getting Started with Blackboard.
