This session is designed to share challenges and opportunities for applying the QM rubric to a doctoral dissertation course space or other individualized research course. A number of barriers and hurdles to development and delivery of the process will be shared as relate to the incorporation of QM rubric application and processes. Specific application in both Blackboard and Canvas Learning Management Systems will be included.
Interested in discovering how to meet QM Standard 8? Consider attending this session and learn how to create inclusive and accessible distance learning environments, while adhering to Universal Instructional Design (UID) principles.
Faculty complete the APPQMR within a year of first teaching online with the goal of continuing to offer professional development needed for successful course design. Our hope was to also introduce QM and encourage official QM reviews. Find out about our successes and areas for improvement.
This is a Poster Presentation, I will be printing the poster in poster format as well.
An instructional designer and a faculty member have the same goal in mind – a quality course. Yet, all too often we travel down two very different roads to reach our destination. More importantly, we have two different ways of evaluating whether we have indeed arrived. What we both need is a good road map. QM4Design is the ultimate, all-in-one GPS for course design. This innovative tool brings faculty and instructional designers together on a shared path toward the final destination: a course that meets all the Quality Matters standards.
Conduct an internal QM review during course design using QM4Design, an all-in-one GPS that keeps both instructional designers and faculty on the same road to quality. Make your reservation for a QM trip and plan your institution's destination.
This presentaiton outlines how to access and use the Quality Matters Research Library. The article submission and approval process will be explained as well as the roles of Quality Matters Research Colleagues as well as the research databases and journals queried for inclusion in the Quality Matters Research Library.
This session will introduce easy-to-implement discussion strategies to increase engagement. It will explore online debate, effective ice breakers, scenario-based learning, and multimedia discussions. Templates and examples will be provided.
Jillian Jevack, Instructional Designer for Quality Matters, presents a process and worksheet for conducting a Self Review of a course. With an eye to continuous improvement and a focus on the QM Rubric Standards, this presentation at the Annual QM Conference on Quality Assurance in Online Learning shows participants how to access tools for a self-review process.
The webcasted video of this presentation can be seen on our YouTube channel.
Our teams use the QM Rubric as a valuable tool to build and review online courses. Now, we want to advance our faculty development initiatives to include a tool to review online teaching. This session will share an instrument, based on the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education, faculty can use to review their online teaching and will describe the study that was conducted to refine this instrument for further use.
Assuring Quality Through Development of Evidence Based Assessment Practices: Case study on the Value of Applying Assessment Data through Quality Matters Standards
This case study highlights the efforts of three distinct schools and colleges within Drexel to develop a sustainable and scalable comprehensive process to establish evidence based assessment practices. The process establishes rigorous and measurable cycles of learning through by using Quality Matters standards to align institutional, program and course level objectives to student learning outcomes. In addition, the paper illustrates the application of direct and indirect assessment towards developing interventions leading to quality student learning outcomes.
Facilitating a QM program at a large college district can be very challenging. It is often difficult to achieve consensus among campus leaders regarding direction and procedure. Through trial and error and in cooperation with the seven colleges of the Dallas County Community College District, we have identified effective steps to facilitating the QM review process on a large scale. This presentation will address a variety of issues encountered when managing a QM program at a multi-campus institution.
Want to stand out at your institution? Practical tips on how to have your accrediting body single your program out for praise and a significant accomplishment during your site visit. Analyze the current state of your policies for Quality Matters reviews and generate a plan to position your institution for success. Proven methods will be presented and the audience will participate by critiquing their current policies and procedures.
Join us to discuss how a course without QM can become a viral infection and how such an infection can spread across multiple courses. Diagnose and treat the virus as an antiviral QM agent.
An online program sought continuity amid courses through Rogers' (2003) diffusion of innovation theory to develop a QM-based rubric, template, and matrix laced with humor to invigorate, inspire adoption, and uphold faculty autonomy.
The Pathway to Master Online Instructor Program (Pathway) was created to help faculty learn the fundamentals of course development and delivery, and current trends in the field of online learning. The Pathway program includes five unique courses that address online teaching, online course design, ADA compliance, and Quality Matters.
In universities with a large focus on research, it can be difficult to get faculty to concentrate on the teaching that occurs in their classrooms, and it is even more difficult to get them to look at the quality of their online courses. This session will focus on ideas that need your time, meeting spaces, online communities, and, hopefully, a Quality Matters subscription, but very little financial investment on the part of your department.
Backward Design, Forward Motion: How a Professional Development Program is Making Course Reviews Easy
What do a 12-week seminar on course design and development and a 6-week seminar on online teaching have in common? Both point faculty toward creating courses that meet QM standards with flying colors. This presentation is about a professional development program that's making QM peer reviews a breeze.
