Is this Membership right for your organization?
New to Quality Matters?
Sign up for the Full Essentials Subscription package to receive discounts on important components of quality assurance to jump-start your QM implementation.
The Full Subscription works best for an organization that isn’t part of a larger system, but wants to enable a quality assurance process that empowers faculty and staff to conduct course reviews and lead trainings. This Membership gives your organization more autonomy — and more benefits — than a Basic Membership. Using the HE QM Rubric — along with QM tools and resources — your organization can work toward improving course design, meeting QM Standards, and achieving QM certification. Additionally, your staff can become certified to deliver the Applying the QM Rubric and the Improving Your Online Workshop workshops. This reduces your professional development costs and puts you on a path for effectively implementing the QM quality assurance model.
What your Membership includes
- A fully annotated, web-based HE QM Rubric that shows you what to look for when evaluating your courses
- A license to facilitate the Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR) workshop
- The ability for all institutions to conduct their own course reviews when they are ready for QM certification
- Two complimentary seats in the QM Coordinator training
