    • Effectiveness of a quality assurance process in online education
    • New or effective ideas for online course design

Proposals are being accepted online at http://facultyecommons.com/academic-partnerships-faculty-research-grant-application-form/.

Awardees will be informed in writing by March 31, 2013 and announced on Faculty eCommons, an AP-sponsored site supporting online faculty around the world, shortly thereafter.  Funds will be disseminated over the duration of the project and will be paid to the institution's grant or equivalent office.
