2022 Higher Ed Quality in Action Conference
Are your learning objectives not quite feeling right? Perhaps you have some fake objectives? Or maybe the alignment is upside down? Let us help you identify topics, assessments, activities, and instructional materials masquerading as objectives and evaluate upside-down alignment.
Many adult learners in higher education have a need for free/low cost textbooks and instructional materials. Open educational resources (OERs) provide free educational materials you can revise, retain, reuse, remix, and redistribute. This session will identify specific criteria to assist with selecting quality OERs with a research based framework.
Based on the 2021 title Creating Transformative Online Communities in Higher Education, in this interactive presentation, we will a) describe the common features of transformative learning experiences; b) explain the importance of course design in supporting transformative learning; c) review practical ways to apply transformative principles and practices to the instructional design process.
Photovoice, originally developed as a qualitative research method, can serve as an effective online teaching and learning strategy. Photovoice blends visual elements and written reflections to respond to meaningful questions in order to identify actionable solutions. Implementing Photovoice effectively can enhance student interactions by sparking thoughtful, authentic conversations that help students apply course content to their personal experiences.
Demands on today’s faculty in the classroom seem to be constantly growing. No longer are we expected to just “teach our content”, but we also need to make sure our students are work-force ready, are engaged, supported, and motivated. Oh wait, you need to teach your course online or in a hy-flex model and your class size has doubled? Don't worry, you got this and I'll show you how. In this session my goal is to show you that teaching can still be fun while we try to meet the ever changing needs and expectations of our students.
Participants will examine the advantages of a mentee-mentor relationship and how the QM framework formed a bridge between a small and medium-sized institution. Participants will gain strategies for using QM to form successful inter-institutional partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
A QM Connect 2019 Grapevine, Texas session featuring a motorcycle riding petite instructor/presenter who incorporated "Two Truths and a Lie""as a fun Introduction prompt became our inspiration! Wow! No more boring introductions allowed! Now we use the QM mandated introduction as part of efforts to build and measure social presence and social capital in a cohort model. Our prompts fall into three categories: course-related, course-related fun, and just plain fun!
How do you incentivize 200 full-time and adjunct faculty to elevate their online course designs to the next level? A very large community college district developed the Design Challenges to support faculty in such an endeavor.
