What is course quality?

Join us as we identify the critical elements of the nationally recognized Quality Matters (QM) course quality assurance program. This one-day workshop will focus on the QM Rubric in order to frame a peer-to-peer conversation on some of the components of course quality.


  • Identify the underlying principles of QM. (Recognize key QM underlying principles and concepts.)
  • Identify the critical elements of the QM quality assurance program, including the QM Rubric, materials, processes, and administrative components. 
  • Apply the 2011-2013 QM Rubric to review online courses. 
  • Make decisions on whether the SPCH 1113 course meets selected QM Rubric standards. 
  • Apply the concept of alignment.
