Apply for an Online Teaching Project

View the online application or apply for a McGraw Online Teaching Project.

A complete project application consists of the components listed below.

► An online application containing these sections:

  • Project Overview or Project Scope
  • Project Description
  • Development Schedule
  • Other Resources and Budget

► A brief letter of endorsement from the department chair or program director sent separately via email to Rebecca Graves-Bayazitoglu, Director of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.

► The online application supports the uploading of external documents and files. For self-­produced open online courses, we may request a sample recorded video lecture and plans for the online course site.

► Faculty members who successfully propose open online courses will be asked to review the requirements of Princeton’s online platform partners (edX, Coursera, Kadenze, or NovoEd). All faculty who plan to teach an online course through one of the University’s platform partners must sign a standard IP use agreement. Please review our guidelines on Princeton’s IP use policies for online courses.

Pedagogical Support for Online Teaching Proposals:

Faculty are strongly encouraged to consult with the McGraw Center in designing their proposals. Rebecca Graves-Bayazitoglu, Director of the McGraw Center, consults with faculty on the development of proposals that connect online environments with the curriculum. Mona Fixdal, Associate Director for Online Learning Environments, advises faculty on designing online environments and developing their work schedules for the production process.
