There are instances when course development stipends can be paid out to a faculty member who undertakes the opportunity to develop a course for online delivery. Each of the university’s colleges decide upon stipend eligibility and amount. Stipends are intended to be a way for a college or department to compensate a faculty member’s effort and innovation in the development of a pedagogically‐sound online course.
SHSU Online plays a role in the stipend process by providing the faculty member and the academic department feedback about the quality and delivery‐readiness of the newly developed course via the Technical Evaluation.
For more information regarding stipend eligibility, amount, and disbursements, contact your department admin or department chair.
