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 500 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.

    Preparing for a Formal QM Review: Comparing Three Models

    Renée Petrina, Principal Online Instructional Designer, Indiana University; David Becker, Instructional Design & Technology Specialist, Indiana University Southeast; Sandra Johnson, Quality Matters Coordinator, New Mexico State University; and Pat Abrego, Director of Instructional Technology & Distance Education, Texas A&M International University

    How do you ensure consistent quality in formative, internal reviews? A full QM review is a significant investment of time and funds — how can you be confident that a course and a faculty member are “ready” before they go up for a full review?

    In this moderated panel, QM Coordinators from three universities (New Mexico State, Texas A&M International, and Indiana) will compare and contrast how they have approached this challenge that faces many QM institutions.
    Webinar begins at 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT, 11:00 a.m. MT, 10:00 a.m. PT
