Online Self-Paced WI Course Guidelines

  1. So long as an online course is “locked” and no course content will change, the WI flag/designation can remain. Should there be an instructor change, then the course will follow the renewal process.
  2. Even for courses with no changes, the Campus Writing Program requires the online self-paced instructor to upload a CIM term course proposal each semester for courses with 21 or more students in order to be considered for funding.
  3. New online self-paced WI instructors are required to attend the WI Faculty Workshop before they begin teaching.
  4. The design of self-paced WI courses must include a sequence of writing assignments and revision so that students are writing throughout the course and not just in one concentrated time (as per WI Guidelines checklist item #4).
