eCampus Quality Assurance Grant
The eCampus Office of Quality Assurance (EOQA) at San José State University (SJSU) is awarding faculty grants in the amount of $1,500 (USD) to enhance the quality of online/hybrid courses and deliver innovative and engaging online/hybrid courses. EOQA invites all faculty (full time, associate, assistant and adjunct Professors) to submit a proposal for the online/hybrid course development grant. EOQA’s goal is to provide access to high quality, student-centered courses that reflect best practices and promote excellence in online/hybrid teaching and learning. EOQA will assist faculty with course design and development by providing resources, workshops, peer reviews and tailored training throughout the process.

eCampus offers a wide variety of workshops each semester to help you develop your full potential and grow in your teaching practice. We’ve organized these options thematically into six color coded tracks to help you prioritize what you might want to focus on.
