Dedicated Professional Development for Your Organization

Quality Matters offers many professional development workshops on-site or as dedicated online sessions for your group. And, remember, with some memberships institutions can have facilitators certified to deliver select QM workshops. To request dedicated sessions for your group, please use the form on this page. You can also contact QM’s Professional Development Registrar with any questions.

On-site (Face-to-Face) sessions are often an excellent method of sharing Quality Matters with a larger group, as well as connecting faculty with a group of colleagues who can provide feedback to one another based on a shared understanding. QM will send a qualified QM Facilitator to your institution to lead these individual workshops, which are typically conducted as one-day sessions. Participant materials are provided by QM. **During the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering synchronous virtual options for some of the on-site options.**

Dedicated online workshops are great for accommodating your team members who need to complete professional development asynchronously. They may have different schedules or be in different locations that prohibit an onsite session. By participating in the same session, though, they can still interact and share the workshop experience. Participant materials are provided by QM.

Dedicated synchronous online sessions — QM Live! — are excellent for providing topic or skill specific professional development in an interactive, short course format. These one and two-hour workshops can be delivered as single sessions or grouped to address development goals. Facilitated collaboration provides participants — all wearing headsets — with a collegial learning environment.

WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS…

In a 2016 study,

99%

of those surveyed expressed that QM had a positive impact on their pedagogy.

“Looking at objective alignment has caused a measurable change in every course I teach because it forced me to look at the assumptions I was making about what [the students] were learning based on what they were being given.”
