This hands-on workshop will explore the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric and its use in reviewing the design of
online, blended and CBE courses. 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. In addition, you will gain ideas to improve your own courses using the QM
Standards and ultimately, improve student learning and success.

After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the underlying principles of QM. (Recognize key QM underlying principles and concepts.)
  2. Identify the critical elements of the QM quality assurance program, including the QM Rubric, materials,
    processes, and administrative components.
  3. Apply the QM Rubric to review online courses.
  4. Make decisions on whether the sample course meets selected QM Rubric Standards.
  5. Apply the concept of alignment.
  6. Draft helpful recommendations for course improvement by citing annotations from the QM Rubric and
    evidence from the course.
