What do a 12-week seminar on course design and development and a 6-week seminar on online teaching have in common? Both point faculty toward creating courses that meet QM standards with flying colors. This presentation is about a professional development program that's making QM peer reviews a breeze.

Higher education faculty typically conceptualize alignment differently than instructional designers do. How can we engage faculty in effective discussions around this deeply essential aspect of course design? In this session we will discuss ways to support faculty toward stronger alignment by helping them to conceptualize a course as a thing apart from its designer. You will come away with new insights as well as practical tools to use when working with faculty.
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.
Sneak quality assurance into faculty development to help instructors design quality courses even before deciding to teach online. Ensure quality through consistent exposure to LMS templates and workshops infused with QM principles, while avoiding a prescriptive approach to course design.
Learn how a small, rural college created a common repository for best practice examples, technology tools and strategies, course design, and QM Standards using the directory approach to help faculty keep up with all the complex components of quality courses. Resources will be shared.
Join us for a discussion of how social media marketing and communications strategies can be used in an academic environment towards a successful implementation of Quality Matters. We will explore the use of Google+ WordPress, and Twitter and discuss how to build a dedicated academic community.
