Innovative Learning Technology Initiative (ILTI) RFP 5


The Innovative Learning Technology Initiative (ILTI) invites UC ladder-rank faculty, Teaching Professors, and Assistant Teaching Professors to submit proposals as Principal Investigators (PIs) for fully online courses and hybrid courses to be offered during the academic year across multiple campuses and without any additional fees to students.  In addition to accepting proposals for hybrid courses this year, ILTI is changing the cross-campus offering requirement to three times in three years for semester campuses and five times in five years for quarter campuses during the Academic Year.  Summer offerings are allowed but do not count toward the offering requirement.
