Call for proposals: Summer Term Special Initiatives

September 28, 2015

For more than 130 years, UW-Madison has been offering Summer Term courses and programs for students.

Today, Summer Term is an essential part of the year-round operations at UW-Madison, with more than 13,000 students enrolled in Summer Term annually and nearly 1,000 courses being offered across c.

The Summer Term Special Initiatives were established to provide departments with funding and resources to develop summer curriculum that address high demand and student need. It also provides students with enhanced learning opportunities while providing faculty and staff with teaching opportunities that allow them to take advantage of new teaching methods and tools.

Innovative summer courses provide a “value-added” Badger summer experience for students or fill a curriculum demand currently unmet.

Summer Term, a unit in the Division of Continuing Studies, is making funding available across campus to support the development of online summer courses.  This funding will provide support for course development in summer 2016, fall 2016, and/or spring 2017.  Courses receiving funding will first be delivered in summer 2017.
