MOQI-Sponsored QM Workshops

Improving Your Online Course (IYOC) Workshop

Are you looking for ideas for improving your online or blended course? Faculty who’ve completed this workshop tell us that they came away with many ideas that could be implemented for course improvement. This workshop is not only for those teaching online courses – it is for anyone who teaches online or blended courses.

The “Improving Your Online Course” workshop explores the QM Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online and blended courses. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own online or blended course and develop a course improvement plan. The content is based on the twenty-one “essential standards” of the Quality Matters Rubric.  Participants should have an online or blended course ready to improve. This workshop is not for building a course from scratch or about how to use D2L Brightspace tools.
