Quality Matters Rubric Training Available

qm-cohorts-thumbThe Office of Instructional Technology and the Center for Scholarship in Teaching and Learning is offering two cohorts to help faculty members design their online courses. Cohorts will meet once a week for five weeks, with meetings beginning either Tuesday, Sept. 20, at 1 p.m. or Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 8:30 a.m. Participants only need to sign up for one cohort that works best for their schedule. The one-hour meetings, designed to develop courses that help students succeed and meet the Quality Matters rubric, will cover topics such as discussions in the online classroom, creating a faculty presence, and online assessments. After this semester, all courses taught online must meet this rubric. The next deadline for Fall 2017 classes is Nov. 1. To register visit, https://cstl.semo.edu/workshop/.
