Indiana University has subscribed to Quality Matters (QM) as a tool and process for the design, development, and ongoing review of online courses, especially those that are part of the IU Online initiative. The Applying the QM Workshop is QM's official workshop on the QM Rubric and the process of using the QM Rubric to review online courses. It is intended for a broad audience, including but not limited to faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and adjunct instructors who wish to understand more about the QM Rubric and process of course review.
This workshop will introduce faculty and staff to the QM Rubric and Process, sharing best practices for online course design. The QM Rubric is a research-based set of standards that can be used during the course design process. The QM Process is a peer review process that eventually will review many IU Online courses, with the goal of achieving QM Recognition for mature online courses in the near future. Also, the APPQMR is the pre-requisite for the Peer Reviewer Course, which is the required course to become a QM Peer Reviewer.
This workshop will be offered at IUPUI face-to-face from 9am until 4:30pm, with occasional breaks. Participants will have one hour for lunch, and are free to bring their own lunch or take advantage of the many options available on campus. To receive the QM certificate of completion for this workshop, participants must be present for and participate in the entire workshop.
The next Quality Matters workshop will be offered Friday, August 7, 2015 in Campus Center 306 (registration).
