National Distance Learning Week
The United States Distance Learning Association annually sponsors a week-long celebration of distance learning students and the faculty who teach them. UIS has planned events to celebrate our students who take online and blended courses. You are an important part of our UIS identity!
This faculty panel will focus on the design/redesign and alignment of online courses by using the Quality Matters (QM) rubric. QM is a faculty-centered, peer review approach to quality assurance and continuous improvement in online education. Highlights include:
- Rewriting course objectives using Bloom’s Taxonomy
- Implementing a learning outcomes matrix to focus on course development and alignment
- Understanding the relationship between module-level learning objectives and learning activities
- Developing multimedia content (specifically text, audio, video, animation and interactions) that creates a meaningful learning environment while using best practices in accessibility
- Employing formative and summative evaluations
Faculty from two UIS Colleges will share how they utilize Quality Matters to make continuous improvements in their online courses. Feel free to bring your lunch.
