Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR); 1 Day Face-to-Face Session

This is the same as the two-week online course except offered in a face-to-face setting in one full day!

Learn the underlying principles behind the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric and the critical elements of the QM quality assurance process. Learn about drafting helpful recommendations as you apply the Rubric to an actual course. 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. The APPQMR is the prerequisite for the Peer Reviewer Course, which is the required course to become a QM Peer Reviewer.

Hawkeye Community College's goal is for all instructors teaching an online and/or hybrid course to have Quality Matters training in either APPQMR or IYOC.
This workshop is for you if you are....

  • an instructor new to teaching an online or hybrid course
  • a new instructor to Hawkeye College without prior APPQMR and/or IYOC certification training within the last 5 years
  • a person wanting to learn more about Quality Matters and how it pertains to designing an online/hybrid course.

(A minimum of 6 registrations are required for each session.)

Improving Your Online Course (IYOC); Face-to-Face Session

This is the same as the two-week online course except offered in a face-to-face setting in one full day!

Apply the underlying principles of the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric. Participants use the QM Rubric to review their own online or hybrid course and develop a course improvement plan.
