The President and Provost of Stony Brook University, in support of the continuing evolution of educational excellence for our students and beyond, have established the Stony Brook Online Learning Development Initiative (S-BOLD), funded initially for four years at a level of $250,000 per year. The goals of the initiative are to:
- leverage online channels and technology to enhance and support SBU’s educational mission;
- improve the quality, flexibility and accessibility of SBU education to better serve the needs of residential, commuter and non-traditional students;
- emerge as a leader in pedagogical innovation to enhance teaching and learning outcomes and
- enhance SBU’s brand and global reach.
The initiative seeks new and innovative proposals to develop both online and blended-learning courses and tools that offer special opportunities for learners at Stony Brook University and beyond. A successful proposal must have significant curricular impact and advance understanding of effective practices for online learning.
The 2018 Format for S-Bold will be announed later this summer. Contact Wendy Tang, Associate Provost for Online Education, with any questions prior to the release date at 631-632-7012 .
