Project Budget: $1,801,000


  • 81 Courses x $15,000 / course = $1,215,000
    • 81+ faculty on course design teams: each faculty (or team of faculty) will have primary responsibility for designing one course, and will be on a discipline focused team assisting with the design of their team members’ courses.
      • 79+ faculty – 79 courses are organized into discipline teams
        • to be selected by faculty and VPs of Instruction
      • 1 librarian designing “Research for the 21st Century”
        • to be selected by Library Media Directors Council
      • 1 VP Student Services (with 3 partners) designing “Try College / College Success”
        • selected by Student Services Commission:
          • Carol Green, Pierce Fort Steilacoom
          • Clint Gabbard, Walla Walla
          • Mark Mitsui, South Seattle
          • June Stacey Clemons, Clover Park

  • 22 team members to support and partner with all faculty designers x $15,000 / person = $330,000
    • Librarians x 11
    • Instructional Designers / Quality Matters Master Reviewers X 5 + Boyoung & Kayeri (unpaid SBCTC staff) = 7
    • Institutional Researchers x 2 + (unpaid) SBCTC research staff = 4+
    • ADA / Disability Directors x 2
    • Global Citizen / Multicultural Experts x 2
    • Scott Dennis (unpaid SBCTC staff) will support project-wide professional development efforts

  • eLearning Support = $81,000
    • eLearning Directors will provide assistance to faculty designers at their College.
    • Grant will move $1000 per course (x 81 courses) to support College eLearning department activities.
      • e.g., if Walla Walla faculty design 5 courses, $5,000 in eLearning support money would flow to the Walla Walla as part of the grant.


  • Professional Development / Meetings / Conferences: $45,000

  • Project Coordinator (24 months): $130,000

* Colleges may not take indirect funds as part of this grant project. *



Funding Flow: on Timeline


  • Grants funds will move from the SBCTC to the the college -- not directly to the grant participant. How the college and the grant participant arrange for release time, stipends or some other arrangement is a local discussion. SBCTC will not be involved in those local discussions.



  • If a grant participant is unable or unwilling to meet the timeline in the open library course project, SBCTC reserves the right to work with the Instruction Commission to replace that participant with another qualified (alternate) candidate.
