Applying the QM Rubric Workshop

Friday, March 1, 2013
9:00am – 4:00pm
Carlson Library, Room 1025

This workshop 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/blended courses and ultimately, student learning and success.

QM is designed to improve the quality of online and blended courses by establishing a peer-reviewed quality assurance review process. You will become familiar with the Quality Matters standards and participate in a practice peer course review of an online course using the review tools. Participants in this hands-on workshop can be online/blended instructors, instructional designers, and/or faculty members & faculty developers. After successfully completing this workshop, you will be eligible to move into the Online Peer Reviewer Certification. In addition, you will gain ideas to improve your own courses using the QM Standards.

Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Describe the underlying principles of the Quality Matters project.
  • Use the QM Rubric to evaluate and revise your own online or blended courses.
  • Apply the Peer Course Review Rubric.
  • Decide if you wish to participate as a QM peer reviewer.
