The purpose of this study was to review the literature and to develop a comprehensive framework for designing an online collaborative grant writing course for professionals in international development. A systematic approach was used to search for peer-reviewed journal articles between 2012 and 2022, and 30 articles met the full inclusion criteria and were selected for review. The articles were reviewed and synthesized. Next, a framework for developing an online collaborative course was proposed. Major themes identified were community in online writing and learning, learning theories in online collaborative writing, culture in online collaborative writing, instructional design in online collaborative writing, and integrating digital tools. The findings of this study suggest a four-dimensional approach to developing an online collaborative grant writing course that includes cognitive, instructional design, and social and technological considerations.
