Applying the QM Rubric (APPQMR)
This workshop is intended for a broad audience including faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and adjunct instructors. It is particularly helpful to those new to QM or those considering the adoption of a quality assurance process for online and hybrid learning. In addition to learning about the QM Rubric and the course review process, participants will learn to apply the concept of alignment and draft helpful recommendations for course improvement.
The APPQMR is the prerequisite for the Peer Reviewer Course, which is the required course to become a QM Peer Reviewer.
Improving Your Online Course (IYOC)
Use the QM Rubric to review your own courses and develop a course improvement plan. Bring course content to class so you can practice on your own materials. The “Improving Your Online Course” workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. The content is based on the essential Specific Review Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric. Participants come away with a plan for course improvement, so enrolling in the workshop with a pre-developed online course is recommended.
