QM Implementation Plan 2013-2016

Using the Quality Matters rubric and other resources, this implementation plan will guide us to cultivate attention to quality in online course design. The plan involves a three-year period from July 2013 to July 2016.

The vision statement for our quality initiative is “Every course a quality course.” As such, focus on quality in online courses offers the following implementation plan:

  • Design and present regularly-scheduled professional development based on Quality Matters™ standards.
  • Provide Quality Matters™ awareness presentations to NMSU academic colleges.
  • Establish and maintain ongoing communication with Quality Matters™ support groups across the NMSU System.
  • Provide flexible review options to those who wish to use the Quality Matters™ rubric and annotations on their own.
  • Apply Quality Matters™ standards to online courses in an online Masters degree program by 2016.
  • Support 100 (approximately 10%) of the NMSU-Las Cruces faculty/staff to complete the Quality Matters™ Applying the Quality Matters™ Rubric workshop by 2016.
