Designing Your Blended Course (DYBC)
The “Designing Your Blended Course” workshop explores the eight General Standards in the QM Rubric and provides a framework to build a blended course. While QM recognizes that each institution will define "blended" in its own way, this framework will work with any combination of face-to-face and online elements. Participants use the QM Rubric to review key blended elements and develop a plan for one module for your blended course.
