Do you have an idea for making your online class more engaging, but you need funding or expertise to get it off the ground?
- Innovation Scholar Team: for teams of faculty working together to implement innovation across a series of courses or throughout a degree program
- Innovation Spark Scholar: for individual faculty whose projects are small in scope — “plus one” initiatives to spark student engagement
- Innovation Spirit Scholar: for individual faculty whose projects will impact several modules or speak to multiple teaching goals
- Innovation Scholar in Residence: for individual faculty whose projects will have broad impact throughout every portion of an online course, or that span multiple courses within a curriculum
The application process is not difficult!
- Submit your idea. Think of this as beginning a conversation with the Innovation Team. If you tell us your story, ideas, and goals, we will help you develop the “what” and “how”! (Idea deadline: November 6, 2017.)

- Pitch your idea to the Innovation Scholar awards committee on December 8 or 11, 2017.
Selected Innovation Scholars will present their ideas at the Online Learning Innovation Summit on January 26, 2018.
