TENNESSEE HIGHER EDUCATION COMMISSION (THEC) GRANT

Building Capacity for Quality Online, Distance, and Hybrid/Blended Courses/Programs

We are excited to announce that the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC), a center dedicated to supporting UTHSC faculty in their efforts to expand and strengthen their use of teaching techniques and technologies, received $25,000 from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.

With this generous support, the TLC will initiate a focused quality effort to:

  • establish national recognition of selected online courses and faculty in each academic program at UTHSC that delivers all or part of its courses via online, distance, and/or hybrid/blended mechanisms
  • establish national program certification in course design and teaching for two online programs
  • prepare a core group of faculty members to serve as Peer Reviewers
  • prepare instructional designers to serve as QM Master Reviewers
  • prepare faculty for self-review of courses via professional development in best practices for teaching online and deploying online courses
  • to value, build, and support the quality online programs at UTHSC

Our goal is to build our capacity within the institution and enhance UTHSC’s reputation for delivering high quality online, distance, and hybrid/blended courses/programs.
