Two Options for Spring 2020

Smaller in size than the annual QM Connect Conference, QM Regional Conferences are usually held in the Spring in partnership with a Member Organization. Content is focused on quality assurance in online learning issues that the host region is or may soon be facing. The intimate setting is ideal for sharing ideas and learning from the challenges and successes of colleagues from a particular region.

The two-day conference begins with Pre-Conference Workshops to help get you in a QM state of mind. On the second and final day, you'll attend a plenary Keynote Session and then choose from a variety of sessions — categorized by concentration — to attend.

The 12th Annual Conference on Quality Assurance in Online Learning

Every year thought leaders, administrators, teachers, instructional designers, and educators from all over gather to learn, connect and share with one another in the spirit of continuous improvement. As the areas to which QM can be applied, customized and integrated expand, we look to research and innovation from our Members to inspire our efforts to deliver on the promise of online learning. From the big picture to the small details, this conference helps those new to QM and those with years of experience connect on what matters most to the QM community — quality online learning for all learners.

The three and a half-day conference begins with Pre-Conference Workshops to jump start your conference experience and get your QM juices flowing. Newcomers are invited to a special breakfast to help them make the most of the conference experience. Keynote and plenary sessions bring everyone together for interactive discussions on the topics of today and tomorrow, while concurrent and poster sessions delve into the important details of using the QM quality assurance system to achieve and maintain quality learning outcomes.
