Four CCSF online instructors have been selected to receive a CVC Online Teaching Award for their online course. The CVC Online Education Awards Program is designed to stimulate and foster the development of shareable online teaching materials within the California Community College System. CVC received applications from community college instructors throughout California. In this first round of CVC's two-phase award competition, each faculty member will receive a $1,000 stipend and have an opportunity to compete in the next round for additional recognition and compensation. The stipend for the first round gives instructors funding for modifying their course. The winners are:
Diana Markham: Physical Science (PSC 11)
Karen Cox: Advanced Composition (ENGL 40)
Lisa Harrison: Lifespan Development (PSYC 21)
Ardel Thomas: Intro to Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender Studies (GLST5)
Thomas took over the GLST 5 online course developed by Bob Gurney, who passed away last Fall. The award recipients will be enhancing their course during the spring 2007 semester; their courses will be reviewed again by the CVC judges for additional recognition and compensation. Three winners will be selected during the second round. Over the past five years CCSF online instructors have received two national and five statewide awards for their online courses. CCSF offers over 100 online courses for busy professionals who want to complete their degree, transfer to a four-year college or university, or to further their education and skills.
