Faculty Win Grants for Development of Winter Session Online Courses

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), in collaboration with the Office of On Your Time Initiatives (OYT), awarded four faculty members grants for the development or revision of exemplary undergraduate online courses for Winter Session 2023. The grant award winners will develop or revise fully online asynchronous courses (in which 100% of the instruction is offered online, with no required synchronous class meetings).

Dawn Campbell, Ed.D.

Senior Instructor
Women’s and Gender Studies Program

Dawn Campbell will revise WGST 307/POLI 307 - Feminist Theory for Winter Session 2023. Interest in this course has grown over the past several years and it is in high demand. Offering it as an online course during Winter Session provides an opportunity to satisfy student demand. In the course, classic and contemporary themes in feminist theory and ongoing and enduring debates within and about feminism are explored. Students are challenged to reflect upon and move beyond their own closely held beliefs to look at feminist theories, gender relations, and intersectional social inequalities in the context of the field of women’s and gender studies and related interdisciplinary domains. Students who complete the course satisfy Graduation with Leadership Distinction (GLD) including Diversity and Social Advocacy and Professional and Civic Engagement Leadership Experiences.

Julian Dalzell, MSc

Senior Lecturer
Darla Moore School of Business

Julian Dalzell will leverage his 43 years working in Human Resources around the world with Shell to develop an asynchronous version of MGMT 406 – HR in the Global Firm. MGMT 406 is designed to provide students of all backgrounds with knowledge in the key areas of global Human Resources. Increasingly the world of Human Resources is unconfined by the niceties of geographic boundaries and requires knowledge and skills of the broader international environment to be effective. Clearly emerging leaders need to be schooled and skilled in the technical issues of management as well as their core functions and disciplines. As they move further up the corporate ladders, however, the best leaders understand how to take advantage of all the resources around them – in particular the ones that can leave at a time of their own choosing. In this environment leaders need to understand the core skills of their Human Resources function, how to develop and collaborate with them and ensure that policies, practices and systems are aligned with business AND employee needs.

Andy Gillentine, Ph.D.

Sport and Entertainment Management
College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management

Andy Gillentine will develop SPTE 385 - Ethics in Sport and Entertainment Business to meet the demands for this course by the USC student population. The course examines the ethical issues associated with sport and entertainment through critical and thorough investigation, to empower participants with the skills and insights necessary for developing ethical responses. SPTE 385 serves not only the majors and minors pursuing degrees in Sport and Entertainment Management but the course is also accepted as a Carolina Core VSR course (Values, Ethics, and Social Responsibility). This course has been identified as a contributing course towards Graduation with Leadership Distinction (GLD), Professional and Civic Engagement leadership Experiences. Developing SPTE 385 as a winter session course will entail the development of all new course materials, including lecture videos, discussion board items, outside of class assignments, PowerPoint materials and ancillary reading and study materials. The goal for the SPTE 385 winter session course is for it to emerge from this development as a completely new and complimentary course offering for USC.

Oz Ince, Ph.D.

Clinical Associate Professor
Darla Moore School of Business

Oz Ince is developing FINA 363 – Introduction to Finance, to allow students greater flexibility in planning their course schedule, providing them with a valuable opportunity to catch up, get ahead or stay on track for graduation. FINA 363 is an introductory finance course taken by all business majors. Thus, it is a key course in the college curriculum with very large student numbers. Due to the very large number of students taking this course, demand from students is certain to be high for an online accelerated version of this course in the winter session. The winter session course Ince is developing will also provide a more individualized learning experience to those students who would benefit from taking classes fully online at a fast pace.
