Evaluating Your Course Design: An Introduction to the Quality Matters Rubric

Have you ever wished there was a checklist of steps to follow when you are designing an online course? Then we have something just for you – the Quality Matters rubric! This workshop will introduce you to the Quality Matters (QM) rubric, and demonstrate its use—to ensure quality in your online courses. As we navigate the rubric standards, it will provide an ease of identifying essential components to include in your online course.

The QM rubric is a core component of the QM Program, which also includes a managed peer review process and QM professional development. As part of our continuous effort to improve the quality of our online courses, UTA subscribes to the QM Program. This workshop will prepare you to be a part of this initiative that will enhance the design of online and blended courses—ultimately resulting in improved student learning and success.

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today to join us as we introduce you to the QM rubric and complete activities to practice applying the QM rubric to an online course.
