What does an instructor do when an IHE has no Instructional Designer on staff?
Learn how QM standards influenced the design of a new, innovative educator preparation program. This is the IHE's only fully-hybrid designed program that is aligned to QM standards.
We'll discuss how this program has already influened other academic departments use of QM standards; as well as, share how Quality Matters has influenced both hybrid and fully F2F course design and delivery.
Assessment is a complex subject and can take many forms. Used appropriately, assessments align with course objectives and ensure those objectives are met. Which types of assessment are most appropriate? And at what time should they be administered? How can low stakes assessments be used to build mastery and confidence? How does peer assessment fit into an overall assessment strategy? How can we measure a student's ability to demonstrate real-world skills? Join us to discuss timing, strategies, techniques, and examples participants can use in their own course design.
Looking at the Impact of Quality Matters' Applying the Quality Matters Rubric Training: An Insider's Perspective
Have you attended the APPQMR workshop? Have you applied QM Standards in your own courses? If not, come and hear about the insider's secret regarding the workshop and their perspectives about QM Standards and the benefits of QM. If you have, come and share your experience with others who are passionate about QM. The presenters are eager to share the results of a study on the impact of APPQMR training with you.
Most campuses have a faculty training or development program, and some may even have a set curriculum for that program. However, they may consider Quality Matters to be a portion of the curriculum all to itself. We have found that embedding the ideals and best practices that Quality Matters embodies?from the underlying principles to the Rubric-- into every training or faculty development event can help to promote the program's effectiveness much more than having QM be a stand-alone initiative.
