Developing a truly immersive course, using national benchmarks and appropriate instructional design theories, is a significant, resource-intensive undertaking. Fortunately, the CourseSelect program provides academic Deans the opportunity to have select courses developed to such standards. Though rewarding, selected faculty must be willing and able to dedicate at least 100 hours toward the CourseSelect development process.
Upon completion, courses will be nominated for discipline-specific and design awards, such as the Webby and WCET Outstanding Work Award. The ITS Educational Technology Center is actively coordinating with academic Deans regarding potential CourseSelect nominations.
