An integral element of the workshop is an exploration of the eight General Standards of the QM Rubric, focusing on learning objectives and overall course alignment. Participants will complete a Course Development Plan.The plan includes all of the essential Specific Review Standards (SRS) with space for how the participant will meet the SRS in their course and what resources they will need. Recommended for those who are new to online teaching.

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.
