Faculty Seed Grants: Innovation in Teaching and Researching Online Courses (VPOL)

The Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning (VPOL) invites proposals to develop innovative online and blended courses. The VPOL encourages proposals that challenge our understanding of what’s possible in online learning, leveraging innovative technologies and teaching strategies to promote deep learning experiences for learners at Stanford and beyond. Proposals should include a plan for developing and teaching an innovative learning experience and a plan for researching the impact on student learning. These projects should have a large impact, reaching Stanford students and/or learners across the globe, and informing a scholarly understanding of effective practices in online learning. Four awards of up to $25,000 each will be distributed. Projects should begin in winter 2012 and may continue across two fiscal years (2012-13 and 2013-14).

Individual faculty or faculty teams (departmental or interdisciplinary) may apply. Instructors who are not members of the Academic Council are eligible in many cases, but must have a continuing Stanford appointment and the support of an academic program attesting that the proposed online course is a desirable addition to that program’s curriculum.
