The Quality Matters Program is a national, faculty-driven, peer review process designed to certify the quality of online courses. The QM rubric provides a set of standards for the design of online courses at the college level and looks for classes with quality objectives, materials and assessments that support and engage students with accessible technology.
Professor Aeron Haynie, Director of CATL, said of the recognition, “We are very pleased with this recognition of our faculty’s strong work providing high quality online teaching. Congratulations to Michelle, Gaurav and Cristina! Expect many more announcements as our faculty complete the review process.”
Expanding the team of Quality Matters reviewers
Additionally, the campus has begun to expand our team of QM trained reviewers. These include three new Master Reviewers – Heather Pokorsky, Dan Schrickel, and Pat Theyerl – and two Peer Reviewers — Profs. Angela Bauer-Dantoin and Gaurav Bansal. Becoming a reviewer requires a solid understanding of online course design and 20-30 hours of training.
