Fall 2018 Training Opportunities 

Applying the QM Rubric –  September 17-28

QM's flagship workshop on the QM Rubric and its use in reviewing the design of online and blended courses is intended for a broad audience, including but not limited to faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and adjunct instructors. It is particularly helpful to those new to QM or those considering the adoption of a quality assurance process for online and blended learning. In addition to learning about the QM Rubric and the course review process, participants will learn to apply the concept of alignment and draft helpful recommendations for course improvement. 

Improving your Online Course - October 15-26

The “Improving Your Online Course” workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online courses. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own online courses and develop a course improvement plan. The content is based on the 21 essential Specific Review Standards of the Quality Matters Rubric. Participants come away with a plan for course improvement so enrolling in the workshop with a pre-developed online course is required. 

Introduction to Online Teaching - November 5 - 16

Great teaching can happen anywhere, but teaching online requires different skills, strategies, tools and mindsets than in a traditional face-to-face classroom. For example, creating an instructor presence in your online courses is key to providing your learners with an optimum learning experience that comes naturally in a face-to-face environment. If you are new to online teaching or if you would like to learn more about creating an Instructor Presence and the many other best practices in online facilitation, then the Intro to Online Teaching Certification course is for you. This certification course provides basic training in core foundational skills, knowledge and attitudes required to teach online courses effectively. This course is designed to provide a solid start in learning the best practices required to be an effective online teacher and how to apply these best practices in online teaching toward your current course(s).
