QM Success Stories

There is no substitute for experience! Your colleagues who have experience meeting QM's rigorous course design Standards and implementing QM on their campuses can provide you with valuable insights and experience. "QM Success Stories" webinars are presented by your colleagues and fellow members. They will share their experiences on topics like these and more: 

  • How do I create a plan for implementing QM at my organization?
  • What does a course look like that has met QM Standards?

The sessions are scheduled once per month and are FREE for members only! Space is limited to the first 1000 registrants. You can register once and view the webinar with colleagues. The webinars are also live captioned! Can't make it? All QM Success Stories are recorded and available to subscribers after the session in the Reference Library located in MyQM approximately two weeks after the session.

    Leveraging Quality Matters TOC Training to Advance Institutional Change

    Presented by Justin Sentz, Deputy CITO & Executive Director of Academic Technology of Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania

    Shippensburg University, like many other institutions, made a quick shift to emergency remote learning in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This left many faculty members unprepared and led to questions about quality instruction. In the summer of 2020, the President gave a charge of getting as many faculty as possible independently certified for teaching online. As an existing institutional member of Quality Matters, the University recognized the Teaching Online Certificate as the “gold standard” for online instruction. This presentation will detail how this training was offered to faculty on campus and how the faculty who completed the training became champions for institutional change.

    Webinar begins at 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT

    Tiny Trickles to Wondrous Waterfalls: One Strategy Impacts Several Disciplines

    Presented by Amy Heston, Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Walsh University

    “My journey to the waterfalls” explains how a new approach to learning became a trickling stream of positive impact in one chemistry course, produced river rapids of momentum for QM certification, and then led to a waterfall of student success across several disciplines. Never underestimate the power of a small change toward student success because you, too, could experience a waterfall!

    Webinar begins at 2:00 p.m. ET, 1:00 p.m. CT, 12:00 p.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT
