Quality Matters Resources
In professional development workshops, you often hear us referring to Quality Matters (QM). QM is a nationally recognized rubric for the evaluation of course design quality. It includes eight general standards, each with a subset of specific standards for a total of 43 standards. If your course meets most of these standards, the course will be effective and engaging. This month we wanted to showcase the Quality Matters website and the resources you can access there free of charge, including webinars, courses, and more!
