Use the Bridge to Quality: A QM online course design guide

Unknowns may be the new normal, but your commitment to quality remains unchanged. Now is the time to prepare for whatever comes next — the time to focus on quality online course design. Take your course to the next level and support student success by using the “Bridge to Quality: A QM Online Course Design Guide.” The web-based guide provides a step-by-step approach to complete the hands-on, iterative work that is central to creating a quality course. This includes:

  • Alignment of foundational course elements
  • Promoting engaged, active learning
  • Creative work and organization to develop the course within a digital learning environment (LMS)

If you’re looking for a way forward from Emergency Remote Instruction that is rooted in QM Standards and focused on the learning experience, this guide is just what you need.

QM Members — be on the lookout in July for an extended version of this guide that will include references to teaching action items related to quality course design.
