The “Improving Your Online Course” workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own online courses and develop a course improvement plan. 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 required. This workshop is recommended for tenured, tenure-eligible, and term faculty; staff with a teaching role, and instructional designers with a course they are wanting to improve.
After completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the foundational concepts of Quality Matters
- Apply the essential Specific Review 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
Additionally, you may register (with a fee paid by yourself/department) for the online offering, read more on QM’s Improving Your Online Course webpage. There is a discount because ISU is a member of Quality Matters.
