Grand Valley State University has an institutional level membership in the Sloan Consortium. Membership benefits can be found here.

We have a limited number of seats available for Sloan-C asynchronous online workshops on topics related to online and hybrid course development and delivery. Most workshops range in length from 10 days to three weeks, and provide opportunities to interact with faculty and administrators from a wide variety of institutions. Although ungraded, they are designed as online classes so that you may also experience being an online learner. Certificates of completion are issued if all coursework is submitted by the due dates.

Faculty who are interested in participating in Sloan-C workshops should review the list of available topics at
