Quality Matters 2014 Southwest Regional Conference: The Landscape of Quality
We will be attending and presenting at Quality Matters 2014 Southwest Regional Conference: The Landscape of Quality this Friday, April 25th.
“With the mountains and sky of New Mexico as our setting and the QM rubric as our guide, we hope to get to the heart of what it means to provide quality distance learning and engage students, faculty, and administrators in the process of designing and implementing excellence. Coming together to share our challenges, successes, and common goals for students is perhaps our most important outcome…After all, it is still the people behind the design, the voices who speak for quality and the passion for learning that moves us all to make something better than before.” –Russell Whiting, Program Committee Chair, Santa Fe Community College
We will be presenting, “Course Building: One Module at a Time” as a session on best practices. Consistency in course design is paramount. A Simple way to achieve this is through a course-building template that incorporates QM standards. The course template provides consistency for students as they navigate an online program. It also allows students to focus on content rather than navigation and will assist with persistence and retention rates. This session will explore a template that guides instructors/instructional designers in building a course using the “Course Building: One Module at a Time!” model course.
For those attending the conference, we look forward to learning with you!
