Why redesign your course? The main focus area of the Title V grant addresses enrollment bottlenecks. This means maximizing access to transfer level courses and reducing time to degree, thus improving graduation rates. Specific courses were identified in the approved grant proposal to convert to a hybrid delivery format: they (1) enable students to complete the general education requirements for an associate degree for transfer (ADT), and (2) have lower success rates among Hispanic and low-income students.
Discipline cohorts will participate in training and be provided instructional design services and access to the latest tools to redesign their courses and measure student success. Faculty will have the hybrid online portion of the course reviewed against instructional standards based on California's Online Education Initiative course design rubric.
Timeline (2 years)
Faculty leads will be responsible for (1) attending all training sessions for course redesign; (2) ensuring that any necessary course changes are entered into CurricUNET by the required launch date, and (3) working with faculty in their cohort to ensure that they receive the information from the trainings. Lead faculty receive $1,650; all participating faculty receive long-term PC laptop loan if needed.
All participating faculty will be invited to the trainings.
Year ONE (training)
Participating faculty will provide:
Training for each discipline cohort group begins in the early part of the fall semester and focuses on course redesign and delivery of online-hybrid instruction. The evaluation instrument will include course design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, learner support, universal design for accessibility, academic integrity, and mobile readiness. Course redesign will take place during fall and spring terms. By the first Monday in March, faculty will need to complete the Self Evaluation for at least the first 25% of their redesigned course and review with TLC/Title V Grant instructional designers. The following fall term, faculty will teach the newly redesigned course and PRO data will be collected on various student measures.
