The purpose of EMCC’s Course Master grant is to provide a faculty-driven mechanism for developing, expanding, and upgrading EMCC’s course offerings to improve student access and success through innovative pedagogical techniques and course design. The grant process provides compensation for faculty to develop course masters that will be owned by the Maricopa Community Colleges/Estrella Mountain Community College and may be observed and used by other instructors.
As part of the development process, you will need to find and work with a subject matter expert (SME) to review your course using the SME course development checklist (see supplmental resources below).
Course master development is limited to 30 developers a year. Preference for development will be given to those faculty who qualify for the Course Master grant. However, if after the grant allocation process has concluded and the cap has not been filled, we invite developers with external funding sources to go through the course development process.
Proposal is submitted to FRACTL chair no later than the second to last Friday of February (2/19/21).
