The CVC-OEI Course Design Academy is a free, professional development program for full and part-time California community college faculty teaching online at one of the CVC-OEI consortium colleges. Course Design Academy combines Peer Online Course Review (POCR) with the benefits of one-on-one support from an instructional designer and hands-on assistance from an Accessibility Specialist. Eligibility requirements to participate in CVC-OEI Course Design Academy include:
- You have taught the course online, in Canvas, for at least one (1) full term at a CVC-OEI Consortium College.
- You have taught it as a fully online class - with the possible exception of in-person proctored exams.
- The course is part of an ADT (Associates Degree for Transfer), General Education Transfer Pattern (CSU or IGETC), or CTE (Career Technical Education) program. If you are not sure your course meets this criterion, please consult your CVC-OEI Project Leader, campus articulation officer, or local curriculum committee.
