Honing the Competitive Edge of Quality: Ensuring Future Sustainability by Building on the Lessons of 2020

Higher education’s response to the COVID-19 crises has taught us many lessons about supporting and retaining students as learning modalities changed. High quality, broadly engaging and inclusive digital education is top of mind for senior leaders today.

The inaugural Presidents Summit on Leading Quality is an invitation-only event for senior academic leaders in higher education concerned about the evolving education landscape and how to position their own institutions to attract, engage and retain learners as student demographics, expectations and needs change.

The most successful institutions will be creating and communicating quality at scale. What this looks like — and ways to achieve it — is at the heart of the Summit conversation. Strategically scaling quality in a changing landscape is about more than increasing the number of online courses and programs — it’s about redefining a quality learning experience as a holistic, institution-wide engagement for all students that continues before, during and beyond a degree pathway.

Virtual Conference on Metrics, Data & Evaluation for QA

The Symposium on Data for QA is focused on the data challenges in quality assurance that we all face. This event will offer insights to both individuals and institutions for data planning and collection (quantitative and qualitative!), and making data-driven decisions on everything from course revision to QA implementation.

This is a virtual, partial-day event — all registrants will have access to session recordings in the Attendee Website.

Registration is $150.00

A Focused Virtual Retreat for QMCs and Instructional Designers

This focused retreat is designed to help you as a QM Coordinator or instructional designer elevate your quality assurance process and implementation!

This is a virtual, partial-day event — all registrants will have access to session recordings in the Attendee Website.

Registration is $150.00
