This workshop explores the QM Project and Processes and prepares you to be part of an initiative that positively impacts the design of online/blended courses and ultimately, learning and success for the learner. QM is designed to improve the quality of online/blended courses by establishing a peer-reviewed quality assurance review process. You will become familiar with QM standards and participate in a peer course review of an online course using the review tools.

Upon completion of the QM training, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the foundational concepts of Quality Matters.
  • Apply the essential Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric to your own online course.
  • Describe the alignment of at least one module/unit in your online course.
  • Prioritize improvements to your online course.
