The next “Applying the QM Rubric” (APPQMR) is set start, Tuesday, Feb. 24th and is open Oregon consortium participants. The duration is two weeks. The workshop will be facilitated by Kristen Kane, Tani McBeth and Greg Kaminski. This workshop is designed for instructors who have taught online. (Other workshops are recommended for those in training to teach online for the first time.)
This workshop explores the Quality Matters Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. This is the QM foundation workshop for anyone who might be interested in participating on a peer review team in the future, and participants will surely be able to apply the strategies to their own online course design. During this workshop participants have the opportunity to explore many standards of the Quality Matters rubric in-depth, and to apply those standards to a demo course.Those who complete the workshop might have a future opportunity to participate in the official “Peer Reviewer Certification” course offered through Quality Matters. (The PRC is a 2-week online workshop designed to follow the “Applying the QM Rubric” workshop.) I can highly recommend these workshops and participating on a peer review team as excellent professional development opportunities.
