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.
Participants will apply the essential Specific Review Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric to their own online course, describe the alignment of at least one module/unit in their course, and prioritize improvements to the course.
