Stanford Continuing Studies Instructor Proposal Online Info Session

This event is part of series:

February 26, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Teresa Kpachavi

Are you interested in developing and teaching your own course here at Stanford? The Continuing Studies department is currently accepting Fall Quarter proposals. Courses with Continuing Studies can be taught in-person or online for as short as 1 day or a few days to a full 10-week course. See below for more info on course types.

Fall dates: September 21 - December 4

Proposal deadline: March 24, 2020

Proposal form:

About the course types:

  • On campus classes are offered in evenings or on weekends, and can be anything from short weekend mini-courses or 5- to 10-week evening courses. If your proposal is approved, you would submit a syllabus and texts, and then you would have autonomy to teach on your own. The audience is generally the Stanford area community. On campus classes pay slightly less than online courses.
  • Online classes are usually 5- to 10-week classes. You would work with curriculum experts, an instructional designer, and videographers to develop your online materials (your content with them coaching you on how to teach effectively online) before the quarter starts, and then your commitment would be an hour weekly for a synchronous component (office hours, mini-lecture, Q&A, etc.) plus time spent monitoring the asynchronous components in Canvas. If your course is popular, it could be offered again with minimal additional prep work from you in subsequent quarters. The audience is people of many ages and backgrounds from around the world. Online classes pay $700 per course week (more for very large courses). Please note for online courses, instructors must be in the US and must be willing to repeat the course 2-3 times (so you would have to anticipate being in the US through Summer 2021).
