Lots of amazing things going on in Education here including that the Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning offers funds to support design and development of innovative online and blended courses.
Several of our faculty have received such awards including:
Andrew Patterson—Cardiac physiology. Stanford University School of Medicine faculty will collaborate with the Khan Academy to offer a blended version of this on-campus course for Stanford medical students (Human Health and Disease sequence). Stanford faculty will record videos that will also be used to teach in a partnership with the Gitwe Hospital and School in Rwanda.
Sara Goldhaber-Fiebert—Working with the Stanford Center for Medical Education Research and Innovation (SCeMERI) on Emergency manual implementation in the clinical clerkships – a blended learning approach.
The goals of these grants are to 1) promote innovative blended and online teaching approaches; 2) to assess the effectiveness of these new teaching strategies; and 3) to gauge faculty interest in developing these courses.
The School of Engineering and School of Medicine offer matching funds for successful projects by faculty in their schools.
