  • Academic Standards, in conjunction with EPPC and Joan Griffin, is exploring the feasibility of on-line courses in the traditional Undergraduate Program. We are currently developing a philosophy consistent with CLU's mission and a set of guidelines similar to those currently in place for graduate on-line courses. A pilot program is being considered for summer 2013. Initially, we would like to offer two different courses. We are looking for full-time faculty members who are interested in developing a hybrid on-line class (a combination of in-class and on-line work.) The course should be appropriate for an offering in the summer session. There will be a stipend and assistance in developing the courses. If you are interested, please respond by November 14 to Ken Gardner, Chair, Academic Standards, at or x3863.
