Teaching Extension Courses
Teaching a Face-to-Face (Classroom), Online or Hybrid Extension Studies Course
Texas State faculty should complete the online form by visiting the Extension Teaching Approval Form page. Once reviewed and approved by the Office of Distance and Extended Learning (ODEL), the request will be forwarded for other necessary approvals. These approvals consist of the department chair/school director and the Graduate College (if applicable). Once all approvals are received, ODEL will notify the appropriate faculty member and build all approved extension courses into the official class schedule for the term requested.
The course syllabus for each class that is being requested is required and can be attached electronically to the online request form. ODEL also requires each faculty member's CV, which can also be attached electronically to the online request form.
If you have any questions about instructing a course through Extension Studies, please contact the Office of Distance and Extended Learning at 512-245-2322.
Course Development Assistance Available
If you need assistance developing your online or hybrid course, the Office of Distance and Extended Learning offers faculty the support of an instructional designer to assist in the course development process. For more information, visit our Learning Experience Design page.
