Improving Your Online Course (IYOC) Workshop

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
