Deadline Extended: Faculty Participation for 2020 CUAHSI Virtual University

2020 CUAHSI Virtual University

Extended Application Deadline: December 16, 2019

The program enables university faculty to teach their specialized sub-discipline in an online setting.

CUAHSI Virtual University is composed of inter-university online courses aimed to enhance the depth and breadth of graduate course offerings at universities across the nation, increase the rate of uptake of new research and facilitate networking among our hydrologic community.

The format of the course is designed to give students flexibility to select the three topics most relevant to them from a list of Specialized Online Hydrology Course modules. Modules are offered by leading faculty in these specialized research niches from across the country. Each module, which is equivalent to one-third of a semester course, is designed to facilitate interaction among the instructor and students and contain some evaluation elements (problem sets, projects, presentations, exams etc.). The instructor at each student’s home university will assign a grade based on the student scores and class distribution provided by the module instructor.

The course will run from September through November with each module being conducted for 4 weeks.

Eligibility: Faculty currently employed by a U.S. university are eligible to participate in the Virtual University.
