Internal Funding Opportunities

Online Course Development Funding

Applications for Online Course Development Funding are due December 2, 2019. 

Course development due: May 11, 2020

Following the productive 2019 KSU Student Success initiative to build new online courses, the college has decided to extend the incentive program through June 2020. Selected faculty will receive $3,000 of summer supplemental pay upon submission of a fully built, ready-to-teach online course. The current initiative is open to all 9-month SPCEET faculty including those who have already been through online training.

All classes submitted for this funding must be classes that have not been previously taught in the online format. This does not mean the created course must be a new prep. In fact, we greatly discourage the creation of online versions of courses not previously taught by the instructor. Faculty must produce a class that they have never taught in the online modality but may have taught in the traditional face-to-face format.

All courses must:

  • Be submitted in their final form on May 11, 2020 for review by your chair.
  • NOT be developed entirely or primarily using publisher resources (i.e. if you use publisher resources such as Connect, you must also develop the course using your own instruction and assessments--as would be done in the face-to-face classroom).

In addition, all courses for which compensation is being received must be taught at least once by Fall 2020. Faculty should check with their chairs and department schedulers to determine if this teaching schedule is logistically possible.  

An "Application for Online Course Development Funding" must be submitted to your chair by TBD. This is a competitive funding opportunity; submission of an application does not ensure approval or compensation.

Student Success Course Redesign Pilot Program

Applications for the Student Success Course Redesign Pilot Program are due December 2, 2019. 

The Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology is running a pilot incentive program to redesign courses using learning-centered teaching techniques to improve student outcomes and reduce the percentage of students earning a D, F, or W. 

Read more about the benefits of using learning-centered teaching practices.

SPCEET is now accepting applications for $3,000 (summer stipend or professional development) to revise a course. In the pilot of this program, the SPCEET will award four proposals with priority given to college needs and courses with higher rates of D, F, and W.  

For consideration, faculty must meet the following requirements:

  • The department chair must support the effort and agree to schedule the faculty member to teach the course in its revised form at least once by Spring 2021.
  • Complete the Application and submit a most recent syllabus from the course with the application.
