How We Prepare Faculty for a Quality Matters Review Webinar

Dr. Sandy Johnson was a guest panelist for a national webinar “How We Prepare Our Faculty for a Quality Matters Review” with Renée Petrina, Principal Online Instructional Designer, Indiana University; David Becker, Instructional Design & Technology Specialist, Indiana University Southeast; and Pat Abrego, Director of Instructional Technology & Distance Education, Texas A&M International University.

The conversation revolved around the questions: How do you ensure consistent quality in online courses? How does your institution prepare for a Quality Matters Internal Review?

A QM review is a significant investment of time. How can you be confident that a course and a faculty member are “ready” before they go up for a full review? In this moderated panel, QM Coordinators from three universities (New Mexico State, Texas A&M International, and Indiana) compared and contrast how they have approached this challenge that faces many QM institutions.
