Quality Matters™ Training

Quality Matters™ is a research-based, peer review course certification process – developed by educators, for educators  that helps ensure the quality of Oregon State Ecampus classes. For faculty who develop and teach online or hybrid Ecampus courses, several workshops are offered by the Quality Matters (QM) organization. Ecampus routinely sponsors faculty who wish to complete these workshops.

Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR)

QM’s flagship workshop on the QM Rubric helps acquaint you with the research-based QM rubric. Knowledge of QM standards can help faculty design and develop effective courses, and can help faculty assess existing courses to determine areas that might benefit from improvement. This two-week workshop is offered online. No pre-requisites, but faculty should have taught online or be developing an online course with Ecampus.

Fall term 2017 workshop date:  November 7 - November 21
