UC ONLINE “DIGITAL INCLUSION” FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
In 2022-2023, UC Online will provide approximately $2.3M in project funding in three categories for digital inclusion and online projects - courses, professional development, and research. Based on project plans submitted from campuses, award amounts will vary.
NOTE: UC Online will provide additional funds for CCES operations and change orders, as well as for cross-campus instructional funding/enrollment support. Check with your UC Online Campus Liaisons for more information. The three funding categories are described below.
2022-2023 UC ONLINE FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES
Funding is available for the development and enhancement of fully online courses, course sequences, minors or programs that are developed, offered and open to students across campuses through the cross-campus enrollment system (CCES). The approved course must be opened to cross-campus enrollment (five times in five years, excluding summer offerings). Courses should emphasize elements of digital inclusion and be designed to enrich and enhance student opportunities to learn and succeed.
Recommended Award: A maximum of $50K/course.
2. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Funding is available for systemwide professional development (online and in-person) that supports digital inclusion efforts. Possible projects include: professional development for faculty in online teaching to ensure student success, and the like. Priority will be given to online professional development that is open across the system and involves three or more campuses.
3. RESEARCH PROJECTS
Funding is available for systemwide research projects that focus on online course efficacy, analysis of existing data on online courses, closing equity/performance gaps in online courses, and any new research that focuses on issues related to DEI & A.
The UC Online Leadership team requests that you share your findings or results at the conclusion project. Additionally, we ask that you submit a final expense report at the conclusion of the project.
