QM is a nationally recognized, faculty-centered, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online course design and online components. The QM Rubric is used in course reviews that result in continuous improvement and faculty development.
Quality assurance in K-12 online education matters to faculty, to students, to institutions, and parents committed to excellence in teaching and learning. The K-12 Program is based on research-supported and published best practices.
Developed in collaboration with the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), The CPE Rubric guides the design and review of online and blended courses in non-credit continuing and professional education courses. Corporate training and lifelong learning courses benefit from the QM CPE Rubric Standards.
Engaging Learning Activities: Increasing Student Interactions examines the learning activities to ensure they promote the achievement of the course- and module-level objectives. Participants will discuss the importance of providing opportunities for students to interact with each other, the instructor, and the course content to support active learning. Instructors must provide the students with the instructor’s plan for responding and giving feedback and communicate to the students a clear statement of the instructor’s expectations for student participation. Workshop participants will engage with colleagues and come away with real tools they can use to improve interactions in their courses and set clear criteria for their own response times for students.
The workshop may be taken by anyone who is interested in the topic of online learning. Current and future online instructors will find the workshop valuable. The web conference workshop lasts two hours.
