Using the QM Rubric to Jumpstart your course development in Blackboard

CTE logo Wondering what Quality Matters (QM) is all about? Did you know that CSU has a QM Design Template, a course design tool that can help you incorporate QM standards into your courses? During this brown bag session, we will answer these questions and discuss best practices in course design. QM is a nationally accepted, research-based continuous improvement model for assuring the quality of online courses. The CSU QM Template was created by the Center for eLearning specifically for CSU faculty and course designers; to help them integrate QM's student-centered standards into online and hybrid courses. Whether you are new to designing online or hybrid courses, or wish to learn more about the benefits of using the QM as a design standard, this session is right for you.
