Thank You to our Peer Reviewers!

The Minnesota Online Quality Initiative manages official Quality Matters course reviews for the Colleges and Universities of Minnesota State. Official QM course reviews are completed by review teams that consist of three individuals – all are experienced online faculty who have been certified as Peer Reviewers or Master Reviewers by Quality Matters. These individuals choose to share their time and expertise to provide advice and ideas for improving courses at their sister institutions.

We want to thank and recognize the individuals who’ve participated as Peer Reviewers and Master Reviewers in the past year on official QM course reviews. Their time and dedication to this project makes a huge impact on the course quality and the learning environment for students.

Individuals from Minnesota State institutions are listed by institution in alphabetical order. (Most review teams also include reviewers from institutions outside of Minnesota.) If we’ve missed anyone, we apologize and hope you’ll let us know immediately so corrections can be made.
