The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Center for Online Learning, Teaching and Technology has developed and implemented a gamification framework, which applies best practices and Quality Matters principles to their online and hybrid courses. The framework provides a means of using such items for storytelling, achievements for badges, and clever application of adaptive release within learning modules. Join us to learn how to apply game thinking, game elements, and game mechanics into non-game environments.
2014 Annual Conference
QM Tackles Competency Based-Learning
Presenters will discuss and demonstrate implementation of QM Standards and best practices in online courses; describe efforts to educate faculty on the application of QM and best practices; and discuss efforts to train and encourage faculty to be Peer Reviewers. We will also cover the challenges faced by a large community college in incorporating QM in its quality assurance process for delivery of online courses, and discuss the decisions encountered while implementing an internal QM-based peer review process.
