Operational Procedures For Credit Workshops
Credit workshops may be offered in a face-to-face format (both on- and off-campus), online or through a blended approach. The Office of Continuing and Distance Education will provide instructional design support for faculty members who wish to develop an online workshop or integrate online components within their workshop. The Office of Continuing and Distance Education will also provide secretarial support for instructors, as needed, and assist in marketing workshops.
Students will enroll through Continuing and Distance Education. An online enrollment form is available at www.uni.edu/continuinged/distance/enroll
Workshops that have at least 10 students enrolled by the prescribed dates will be offered. Courses not meeting minimum enrollment requirements are subject to cancellation. If a workshop is canceled due to low enrollment, instructors and students will be notified immediately. Once the commitment has been made to offer a workshop, it will not be canceled, even if the enrollment drops below the minimum requirements.
Instructors who wish to offer a workshop with fewer than 10 enrollments will be paid 65% of the tuition collected. If the class reaches the threshold of 10 students, instructors will be paid the base salary.
The base salary is $1698 per unit of credit. Additionally, instructors will be paid 65% of all tuition collected beyond twelve enrollments, not to exceed a total salary of 1/27 of the the faculty member's nine-month academic-year salary for each semester credit hour taught. For example, an instructor with a $50,000 nine-month salary could be paid a maximum of $1851.85 for a one-credit workshop. Salaries for workshops taught outside summer sessions will not be prorated.
Department heads and deans will have the opportunity to review all proposals before any course development begins.
