Apply for the Online Course Improvement Course Development Institute

Applications are being accepted for the for the Online Course Improvement Program (OCIP) Spring 2018 Course Development Institute (CDI). This five-month program is open to Las Cruces-campus faculty and staff developing an online course.

CDI is similar to the 1Yr+ Fellowship and New2Online Program that OCIP has offered for many years, but is a slightly shorter, cohort-based program with an emphasis on meeting the 6.55 Distance Education Rule. Still based largely on participating in professional development and one-on-one mentoring, CDI is here to help faculty design courses that will meet an Internal Quality Matters Review (NMSU-LC’s online course quality metric).

Participants with a course that meets an Internal QM Review by May 11 will receive a stipend.

For more information on the cohort days and times or to apply, please visit the OCIP website. The application opened Nov. 14 and closes at noon Jan. 19. Participants will be notified by 5 p.m. Jan. 19 of their acceptance.

Orientation for the Tuesday Cohort will be from 1 to 4 p.m., Jan. 23, and orientation for the Friday/Hybrid cohort will be from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Jan. 26.

If you have any questions, please contact Miley Grandjean at mgrandje@nmsu.edu or call 575-646-5492.
