ITDL Seminar

Applying the Quality Matters Rubric

This training will explore the Quality Matters project and processes and will prepare you to be part of an initiative that positively impacts the design of online courses, student learning and success.

QM is designed to improve the quality of online courses by establishing a peer-reviewed quality assurance process. You will become familiar with the Quality Matters toolset and participate in a practice peer review of an online course using the review tools. Ideally, participants in this hands-on workshop should be experienced online instructors, instructional designers, or faculty trainers. After successfully completing this training, you will be eligible to move into the online Peer Reviewer Certification module. In addition, you will gain ideas to improve your own courses using the QM tools.

Who should attend: Faculty members who have taught at least two online courses.
Seats Available: There are only 15 faculty seats available for this event.
When: Friday, February 11 (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) - Register
