The following is being sent on behalf of Summer Sessions

The Office of Summer Sessions is pleased to invite submissions for our 2024 Summer Online Course Development Grant!  This grant funds the development of fully online courses to be offered in Summer quarter, allowing UCSB students to continue making degree progress even if they can't be on campus, and assisting faculty with the creation of innovate curriculum and pedagogy that will enhance undergraduate education.  Over the past few years, we've seen the demand for online courses in Summer grow dramatically, so this initiative plays an important role helping the campus to meet its student FTE goals, and in helping our students to stay on track academically.

Proposals are due on Friday, June 21st, 2024, and the selected courses will be developed over the 2024-2025 academic year to be offered in Summer 2025 and Summer 2026.

If you have questions about the Summer Online initiative, or the grant process, please feel free to reach out to me at leesa@ucsb.edu.
