Harvard Graduate Student Funding for Assignment Redesign (Spring 2021)


Student engagement is an essential element of successful course design, whether online or in the classroom. As faculty review and redesign courses for spring, they should be considering including more frequent assignments and additional opportunities for students to collaborate with each other and to receive feedback.

To support this important work, the OUE will use its Course Innovation Funds for departments to hire Harvard graduate student research assistants to redesign assignments and to help develop courses to be taught in Spring 2021. Funds are for work by graduate students at a rate of $30/hour.
