This poster's focus is on approaches used to engage faculty in course improvement. With program-level leadership and department and university support, significant efforts to meet QM Standards are underway. I will discuss our process and progress.
Do you find it challenging to get the commitment of faculty members during implementation? Would you like to explore a new approach to the standard process? Join us for a discussion of how informal peer review faculty cohorts can increase faculty participation and build your QM community.
Learn how one mid-sized community college used Quality Matters' Teaching Online Certificate to build a model community of online teaching and learning. Participants will engage in activities to spark institutional buy-in and engage faculty.
You are starting to implement QM at your institution and are really excited about it! It provides a great tool for designing and delivering well-crafted online courses geared to student engagement and achievement of student learning outcomes. But then…others don’t seem as excited; why is that? In this session you will learn about the Quality Assurance Continuum of Excellence – a tool that charts how schools move along a progression toward a culture of online quality infused throughout the organization.
There are many myths as to what makes a "good" online presentation. This session will provide an overview of the categories and types of instructional multimedia and the quality research to date. Participants will be invited to discuss the application of these evidence-based practices.
Come see what Laredo Community College is doing to gain faculty buy-in when tasked with having to design/redesign their online/hybrid courses using the Quality Matters Rubric.
Whether your institution is just getting started implementing QM or has implemented QM to help achieve your institutional goals for years, this session will introduce you to a pathway to any or all of the 4 QM Program Certifications. Participants will learn about candidacy eligibility, timelines, needed data, and more. Come away determining where your institution stands and with a plan to get started on QM Program Certifications.
In a world in which technology is increasingly ubiquitous, artists continue to struggle to find a sense of purpose, community, and humanistic value in digitally augmented spaces. We were placed in the rare position of having a choreographer and photographer seek our online learning team to translate their in-person workshops into blended learning environments. 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.

Imagine watching a video and not hearing the audio that accompanies it. What would you miss? For learners who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, that answer may be A LOT! Join us for this session to learn why captioning is important, and also watch a demonstration of how to actually caption a video using YouTube.
The presenters will discuss a study of the relationship between online course content developed implementing/not implementing Quality Matters Standard 5, the students’ level of interaction with the instructor, and academic performance as measured by students’ grade, online engagement, sense of community, and quality of online posts when considering students’ age, ethnicity, gender, number of on-campus courses enrolled, number of online courses enrolled, and number of online courses taken in the past.
Finding ways to increase faculty collaboration for the QM course review process is invaluable.
"Changing the Game" means interacting with students in an imitation of a hybrid format to enhance learning. Using Adobe Connect sessions gives insight on common problems the professor has seen in past courses. Rubrics are used to teach the students how they can directly affect their grade by checking for all requirements using the same "tool" the professor use to grade. My courses start with a welcome video and Adobe Connect sessions for credit. The Adobe Connect sessions feature talking points so that students get an interactive overview of the course purpose and structure.
In this session, participants will hear how one economics professor overcame more than 10 years of his resistance and skepticism and finally embraced on-line course design and delivery for his classes.
Sometimes students’ learning experience is off course from the syllabus or course outline. Quite often faculty are not course designers, but subject matter experts navigating through unchartered territory called course design. Chart a course to quality student learning by mapping course and module objectives to learning activities and assessments. In this session, learn how college faculty use a performance-based course design model and tool to ensure a quality learning experience for their students.
The chief online officer is gaining influence in schools where online learning is becoming a mainstream activity. This session will compare CHLOE Survey results with the experience of a panel of four chief online officers regarding their management role and involvement in online quality assurance.
