Evaluation and Approval to teach Hybrid and Online courses:

An instructor intending to teach a hybrid or online course would first seek approval from their Department Chair. Upon approval, they would submit their course to the Coordinator of the OET. This includes filling out the Instructor Worksheet and giving the Coordinator access to the online course. The Coordinator would then use an Evaluation sheet to assess the course. The instructor would then be asked to fix or work on any issues the Coordinator had highlighted. The course will be evaluated every semester until all issues have been worked through. An instructor needs to  submit every new course being offered as a hybrid or online to the Office of Educational Technology for approval.
