Applying the QM Rubric Workshop

The workshop should appeal to novices and more seasoned faculty alike who are looking for assistance with designing a quality online course or those who may be interested in becoming Peer Reviewers. Throughout the workshop emphasis is placed on the QM Program being an open, collegial, collaborative, continuous, and centered approach to a quality course design. The standards are created by faculty for faculty. QM strives to assist faculty in going beyond "good enough" in their course design.

At the completion of this workshop, you should be able to:

  • Identify the underlying principles of QM.
  • Identify the critical elements of the QM quality assurance program, including the QM Rubric materials, processes, and administrative components.
  • Apply the 2011-2013 QM Rubric to review online courses.
  • Make decisions on whether the demo course meets selected QM Rubric standards.
  • Apply the concept of alignment.
  • Draft helpful recommendations for course improvement by citing annotations from the QM Rubric and evidence from the course.

Reservation deadline 10/31/14 for November workshop.

Experience an online class in Canvas from a student perspective when you take this four-week workshop to guide you through course development for an online course. Canvas is the learning management system of choice for online courses. This course is required for those faculty earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. It is also useful for faculty planning or revising hybrid courses.

Weekly workshop assignments are due. This workshop does not result in a fully-developed online course but gets you started.  The workshop includes reading two books from the Jossey-Bass Guides to Online Teaching, which will be purchased for you by the Office of Distance Education. Past participants have estimated the class taking them about 4-7 hours per week. Note: The fall version of this workshop breaks for a "catch-up" week in the middle and then resumes. Registrations needed by 9/4 in order to provide books by start date. Suitable for instructors.

This workshop will focus on reasons why accessibility for students with disabilities is important, principles of Universal Design of Learning that can be used to result in a more inclusive online learning environment for all students, and practical tips on making instructional materials more accessible using common software (like Office).  The workshop is taught totally online from Canvas using Web resources. Faculty will experience this Canvas experience from a student perspective. It is recommended for faculty who create/revise online or blended courses or are considering doing so. Faculty who use online resources or create instructional materials as supplementary learning as part of classroom courses can also benefit. This course is required for those earning their Basic Online Course Development Certificate. Suitable for instructors.
