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.
