What’s New in Online Program Development Grants?

With the support of the CU System President and CU Denver and Anschutz Medical Campus Chancellors, Online Education is vastly improving at our campuses.  With this support, the Office of Digital Education (formerly CU Online) now has the ability to provide a robust marketing and student recruitment effort as well as a student success team to support your new, fully online students from the moment they indicate they have an interest in your program. 

The new grant awards include support from ODE for financial planning, marketing, recruitment, enrollment, and student support. Additionally, grant recipients will work collaboratively with ODE on instructional design for program and course mapping, as well assessing faculty development needs to maximize fully online academic program success. As always, faculty who will be developing the courses for online delivery will receive an online course development stipend.

The Office of Digital Education released a request for proposal on February 15 for the ONline Programs of Excellence (ONE-CU Denver and Anschutz).  The new ONE-CU Denver and Anschutz program development grant awards are designed to partner with programs that are:

  • Existing academic undergraduate or graduate programs delivered with some or all classes taught face-to-face that wish to convert for delivery fully online OR
  • Existing fully online programs that wish to adapt to integrate new innovations in digital pedagogy (e.g convert to 8-week delivery structure, incorporate adaptive learning, learner centered-design, etc.) OR
  • New academic undergraduate or graduate degree program that wishes to develop in in a fully online format

Proposal Key Dates:

  • Submission deadline:April 22, 2019
  • Merit review:April-May 2019
  • Earliest start date:May-June 2019
