Network Collaborative Course Proposals for Spring 2023 and Academic Year 2023-24
Deadline: September 30, 2022The OSUN Portal for new Network Collaborative Courses proposals for Spring 2023 and Academic Year 2023-24 is now open and the deadline for submission is September 30.
Network Collaborative Courses (NCCs) are co-created by faculty across OSUN institutions and are taught in collaboration at two or more partner campuses. These courses expose students to diverse perspectives through a wide range of cross-network readings, assignments, activities, and events. Network courses advance students’ understanding of discipline-specific and global issues within a local and international context.
Network Collaborative Courses are closely aligned with OSUN’s themes and reflect OSUN’s commitment to providing an inclusive and equitable global learning experience to students from different geographies and varied socioeconomic and academic backgrounds. Students in NCCs will have the opportunity to explore issues of critical importance for humanity and the planet, develop partnerships across the network, and gain essential teamworking, intercultural and global learning competencies that can be applied to personal, professional, and community development
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.

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 institution 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.
