Building a Network of Peer Reviewers

A discussion of the concept at the state level and the implementation plans from the three institutional perspectives will be given. Providing the appropriate tools, involving faculty, and collaboration are the key components of this project and will be examined.

Through the lens of the QM framework, we were able to leverage multimedia, virtual conferencing, and project-based learning in an online environment to enhance face-to-face coursework.
