Peer Reviewer Training – Free for MnSCU Faculty Through 12/30/13

Are you interested in serving on a Peer Review Team as part of the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative?  If so, we’d love to include you! 

MnSCU has provided funding through the Minnesota Online Quality Initiative to reduce the cost of Peer Reviewer training for MnSCU faculty. The Peer Reviewer Course is a two-week online course that is offered by Quality Matters.  The Peer Reviewer Course is described in detail on the Quality Matter website.

To receive the discounted training cost, you must register on this page.   Funds are currently available through 12/30/13 to pay 100% of the registration cost of $200.00.

** Register & Pay through the MOQI registration site (link above) to receive discounted registration. If you register and pay through the QM registration site, you will not be given a discounted price.

Individuals participating as a Peer Reviewer on a course review team report the following benefits of participation:

  • Learn from other reviewers, the team chair and the review process
  • Gain recognition from peers for your participation
  • Engage in collegial discussion with peers across the state about best practices in course design
  • Get ideas for how you might improve your own course

If you’re interested in becoming certified as a QM Certified Peer Reviewer, the requirements are that you 1) be a current online instructor; 2) complete the Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR) workshop; 3) complete QM’s Certified Peer Reviewer course; and, 4) sign a MOU (memorandum of understanding) with QM.

Dates of upcoming QM Peer Reviewer courses are listed here.  Please contact us for more details.
