Carleton has once again partnered with the University of Ottawa to offer a new round of the Shared Online Projects Initiative (SOPI), allowing online module and course development to be shared between the institutions for the upcoming Winter and Spring/Summer terms.

This innovative, cross-institutional initiative provides instructors with grants of up to $8,000 each to work with colleagues at the partner university in developing online courses or modules. Through this collaborative work, instructors will have more flexibility in delivering courses and programs, while providing high-quality learning experiences for students across both institutions.

Grant recipients will be fully supported by instructional designers, educational technologists and librarians from the participating institutions during the design and development phase of their online projects.

Instructors who are interested in this initiative should submit a proposal to both and by midnight on Oct. 30, 2020.
