Call for proposals-online collaborative courses in English
Proposals due by 10/10/2021 - EXTENDED TO 31/10/2021
- The financial support will be managed in the personal fund of the winning researcher
- The course must be approved by the departmental academic committees and will be part of the pool of courses offered by your department. Therefore, it will be recognized as part of your teaching load.
- The course (which will be in English) will help meet the requirement that every student must study two courses in English (starting Fall 2021). The course will be open to BGU and International students from relevant disciplines.
- The budget is for developing and producing the online course. We are aware that course development may require a substantial amount of your time. We believe that the return of your investment will be by reducing on-campus teaching this year and in future cycles of teaching this course.
- This budget is intended for production costs, but not for the teaching costs of the course (which are part of any regular teaching load).
- The course production costs can include - graphic design, translation, video recording, podcast production, digital aids, academic and pedagogical adaptation / development of the course. In order to schedule video recordings, please contact Mr. Ofer Baram, Technology Advisor-
email@example.com. For digital pedagogical support please contact Dr. Yael Linfirstname.lastname@example.org
- A course which will be chosen, will have to be taught at least three times.
