January 2022: OCI – Online Course Planning and Development

Updates for Online Course Planning and Development include:

  • Spring 2022 course development began on January 1. All courses with development contracts have received an instructional design assignment. If a program has online or hybrid course development planned for Spring 2022 but has not been notified of their instructional designer assignment, please contact Ariel Fleurimond, Senior Director of Instructional Design and Curriculum Support (af2830@columbia.edu). Please refer to the intranet planning calendar for target course development dates, including recommended COI syllabus submission deadlines for courses launching in Summer and Fall.
  • Welcome to Yijun (Diana) Dai, who just joined the instructional design team on Jan 4, 2022. She comes to us from Hofstra University and has many years of experience in teaching and learning that she brings to SPS. We hope you get to meet her soon!
  • Congratulations to Cassie Scannella and Camilo Irizarry, who are coming up on their two year SPS ID anniversary! They joined the team in Jan 2020 and Feb 2020 respectively.
