Distributed Learning Course Development Grant Program
2013-2014 Course Development Grant Program

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the 2013-2014 Distributed Learning Course Development Grant Program awardees. Complete program information is available below.

Program Announcement: Distributed Learning (2013-2014) (PDF)


The Provost’s Distributed Learning Course Development grant program is a program designed to encourage faculty participation in Distributed Learning (formerly Distance Education) by providing financial incentives, expert instructional design assistance, and technological support to faculty for the purpose of developing courses for delivery through Distributed Learning (DL) methods.

Each award winner will work as part of a three person team. Each team will consist of a faculty member, a professional instructional designer (housed in CTE and part of a growing cohort of such course design specialists at USC) and a technology consultant from UTS.

The purpose of this program is to create state-of-the-art distributed learning courses that will enhance the overall quality, scope, and reach of teaching and learning offered by USC faculty by using technology and advanced pedagogy to overcome limitations imposed by distance, time and space.

Proposals for fully on-line or “blended” courses are especially encouraged. Blended courses are mixed delivery-mode courses which both meet in a traditional classroom, studio or lab for 50, 75 or 100 minutes per week and complete the required contact minutes via on-line content.
