QM Peer Reviews
QM Peer Reviews are a unique professional development opportunity, which offer the potential of Chemeketa and national QM recognition. Participating faculty members benefit by collaborating with other online instructors, by viewing the course from the student’s perspective, and by learning and implementing research-based learning principles.
Chemeketa Peer Reviews
At Chemeketa, peer reviews are conducted with the understanding that all reviewed courses will eventually meet QM standards for course design. Faculty who choose to participate in the peer review process commit to making adjustments to their course’s design if the course does not at first meet QM standards. Standards are not prescriptive; there are many ways to meet each standard. If a course does not meet a QM standard, the course developer has the support of the peer review team and the Tech Hub faculty to implement possible revisions.
