UNC General Administration seeks faculty who teach online or blended/hybrid courses in US history or culture, English, or economics who might be interested in developing a blended version of their course for delivery to Chinese students this fall in partnership with Shanghai Jiaotong University.
The pilot seeks to launch with 1-2 courses in fall 2015.
The lead instructor will have the opportunity to travel to China at the beginning of the semester to kick off the course and will coordinate with a TA on-site at Shanghai Jiaotong for the rest of the semester.
Pay is available for the redesign of existing online or traditional courses for blended delivery, the full cost of travel to China this fall for the lead instructor, and for the TA in Shanghai.
UNCG faculty interested in being considered for this pilot are asked to work through their department heads and deans to submit a proposal to the provost for possible transmission to GA.
