OSUN Network Collaborative Course Proposals for 2022-23
Deadline: October 20, 2021The OSUN Portal for new Network Collaborative Courses proposals opens on October 1 and the deadline for submission is October 20. Network collaborative courses are co-designed by faculty from multiple OSUN institutions and offered simultaneously at several campuses. Shared readings, assignments, and synchronous classes bring students across different campuses into the same discussions.
Proposal authors are encouraged to begin putting their application materials together well in advance of the proposal deadline. An announcement will be made once the Portal is open and then proposals can be submitted. All lead faculty and co-faculty involved with the planning of proposed network collaborative courses must be registered in the OSUN Portal by the time of the actual proposal submission. We recommend that you register in the portal well in advance of the proposal deadline to address any technical issues/questions that may arise.

As you prepare your proposal, please consult the network course checklist and the section on Network Collaborative Courses of the OSUN Connected and Blended Learning Toolkit.
The introduction of a new network course requires the approval of the relevant Dean or other academic officer at each participating OSUN institution and should follow the institution’s process for new course approvals. As you prepare this proposal, your faculty team should consult the Deans or other relevant academic officers at each partner institutions that will be offering the course. In most circumstances, the network course should be a part of faculty members’ regular teaching loads.
The review of proposals for new network courses is competitive. OSUN supports only those proposed network courses that best meet OSUN’s priorities. Endorsement of the course by OSUN does not imply or replace the approval of the course by each participating institution.
