Systemwide ILTI Call

Each year the UC Office of the President releases an open call for proposals for fully online and hybrid courses. In recent years the call has had rolling deadlines in Fall (November) and Spring (April).  This call is competitive as it offers instructors the possibility of funding levels that can support the creation of high-quality digital content that goes above and beyond what might be expected for an online course. Recent awards at UC Santa Cruz have been used to develop courses that maximize the value of online education by pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the online format.

The information below will be updated as soon as the 2019-20 call is released. Instructors should also look for campus email messages announcing the call during Winter Quarter.
