Benefits of a Course Alignment Matrix: Avoid Ending up Someplace Else

Avoid overthinking the online course objectives writing process. Instead, consider a “go to” course alignment matrix resource to help you organize and categorize information needed to align your course content. Identifying your course level and module level objectives as they relate to assessment and instructional materials provides a clear path to alignment. Clear direction is good just as Yogi Berra said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.”  

Better than "Good Enough:" Quality at Scale at an HBCU

The Quality Matters community is growing at an exponential rate as schools reimagine how to infuse quality into the online and hybrid learning experience. But what does an institution do when its supply of QM support is greatly outweighed by faculty and departmental demand? When this occurred at one mid-sized liberal arts HBCU, the institution systematically changed its organizational framework and practices to meet its rapidly increasing needs.

Better than "Good Enough:" Quality at Scale at an HBCU

When NCCU's faculty and departmental demand for QM outweighed its supply of trained personnel, the institution systematically changed its organizational framework and practices to meet its rapidly increasing needs. Join us as we explore how this institution utilizes the QM Rubric to scale quality across its curriculum by providing program-specific training, developing high-quality master courses, and empowering faculty as Quality Assurance Ambassadors.

Beyond APPQMR: Providing Customized Training on Quality Online Design and Delivery

The Quality Matters professional development offerings are excellent, but they aren’t always an option. At Northern Illinois University, we wanted to make sure our time and budget were used efficiently, so we developed a detailed professional development plan that integrates official QM offerings (like APPQMR and PRC) with custom workshops and resources. In this session, we will share our comprehensive 2-year professional development plan combining QM professional development with custom workshops and on-demand resources. We will also share the outcomes from our first year.

Beyond Assumptions: Putting Research into Practice to Document Quality Learning Experiences

Quality learning experiences are commonly confounded with other variables such as mode of delivery, course grades, student characteristics including intelligence, and idiosyncratic experiences of faculty members. This session distinguishes these variables and assumptions about them from academic rigor and summarizes research support for defining quality and analyzing student learning experiences in higher education.

Beyond Check-the-Box Compliance Training

This presentation will present a case study of a very large, complex, and well-known financial institution and its transformation into a learning organization using the QM Rubric. The presentation is for new QM practitioners and corporate education professionals who are QM-trained. The goal of the presentation is to demonstrate how QM can help an institution move from "training" to "learning."

Beyond the Buzz: Recent Research on Hot Topics in Online Learning and Quality Assurance

The amount of research on online learning and quality assurance accumulates faster than anyone can keep up with it. In this session, attendees will get a summary of recent research findings on some of today's hot topics related to online learning and quality assurance that will let them see beyond the buzz to what has been found via research - and what has not - in order to put their own online learning and quality assurance agendas and efforts into practice.

Beyond Understanding: Working With Faculty to Compose Exemplary Objectives

This hands-on session will explore strategies that can be used by faculty leaders, instructional designers and trainers when working alongside faculty members to assist in
formulating course- and module-level learning objectives that are measurable, observable, attainable and appropriate for online and hybrid environments in higher education.
