Quality Matters: Applying the Standards at IU

Thursday, October 5, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM, CITL Workshop Room (Wells Library East Tower E243)

Quality Matters (QM) is a tool created to help faculty improve the quality of online and hybrid courses. This workshop will introduce both the foundational concepts of QM and the research-supported standards that make up the QM Rubric. It will guide participants as they examine an existing online course in Canvas and determine whether it meets selected QM standards. Upon successfully completing the workshop, participants will think more critically about the design of their courses and be able to apply the QM Rubric when designing and reviewing online and hybrid courses. They also will have the prerequisite to enroll in the QM Peer Reviewer Course.
