Current Development Practices:

eLearning Fellows Program:

UW Bothell Information Technologies and the Office of Academic Affairs are partnering to promote innovation in teaching and learning and increased student access to UW Bothell's courses beyond the footprint of our facilities. We are offering $2000 salary stipends to faculty for course redesigns that focus on high-impact educational practices and move existing on-premise courses out of the classroom for at least 50% of the time. We hope to encourage pedagogical innovation, high-quality online and hybrid courses, and enhanced student learning.
