Faculty Supports for Online Teaching: 2013-14 Shared Online Course Fund Strategic Project –

Published: February 25, 2015

The Faculty Supports for Online Teaching project – commissioned by the Council of Ontario Universities – makes recommendations on how Ontario universities can work together to develop capability for exemplary teaching in online learning. The project makes three major recommendations, based on an analysis of exemplary practices and research evidence within Ontario and sector-wide cooperative efforts for online learning elsewhere:

  1. A shared service network to support exemplary practices for teaching.
  2. Discipline innovation networks to advance collective practice in teaching
  3. An open innovation network for researchers and strategic innovation

The project for Faculty, Instructors and Staff Support is one of five projects commissioned by the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) as part of a broader initiative to support the implementation of a university collaborative online consortium in Ontario, with funding from the Ontario Online initiative of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. The results include recommendations for COU in moving forward and the implications for interactions with parallel activities within Ontario and beyond, feasible timelines and resources.
