Academic Rigor White Paper 3: Aligning Institutional Processes to Support Academic Rigor
In the third and final installment of our white paper series on academic rigor, invited author Andria F. Schwegler, Associate Professor of Psychology at Texas A&M University – Central Texas explores how institutional processes and support impact the application of academic rigor by faculty. Plus, discover what faculty can do to support academic rigor and how their behaviors, expectations, and interactions with students affect student experiences and academic performance.
Achieving QM Certification for your course is not the end of the process — it’s just the beginning! Sharing the certification with key stakeholders, including students, is an important next step. As the QM Ohio Consortium shares, promoting QM-Certified courses helps differentiate your offerings in a crowded online environment and gets the word out to students about the quality learning experiences your institution provides.
In 2011, Texas A & M International University began its quality assurance journey. Now, the University leads institutions in Texas with 144 certified courses. Along the way, the University’s team learned some important lessons about the process — lessons the University’s Director of Instructional Technology & Distance Education is now sharing to help others move their own quality assurance journeys forward.

Academic Rigor White Paper 2: Contextualizing Academic Rigor
Our in-depth look at academic rigor continues in this second white paper from author Andria F. Schwegler. After establishing a comprehensive definition for academic rigor in her first paper, Andria advances the conversation in this second piece by examining the contexts needed to operationalize it — to put academic rigor into practice. Explore how elements such as course design, course delivery and the real world affect academic rigor, including how those elements support academic rigor and higher-level learning.
