Getting Your Course Certified for Quality: Best Practices for Instructors

April 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Do you want to provide the best possible learning experience for your students, and be acknowledged for it? Quality Matters (QM) Certification is a marker of excellence that highlights courses that are engaging, accessible, and aligned to students’ needs. In this hands-on workshop, the speakers will guide participants through a selection of the review criteria used during the QM certification process by assessing an example course in Canvas. Since many of the QM criteria are flexible, participants will be able to explore different ways the standards can be met, both in the sample course and in their own teaching. At the end, participants will be able to apply the QM rubric to review and reflect on one of their own courses. Since there are over 40 standards in the full QM rubric, this offering will focus on the presentation of instructional materials in an online course.

Presenters:  Abbey Elder & Emma Hartman
