Applying the Quality Matters Rubric – Online workshop

Posted by

This workshop explores the Quality Matters Rubric and provides a framework to improve the quality of online course design. This is the QM foundation workshop for anyone who might be interested in participating on a peer review team in the future, and participants will be able to apply the strategies to their own online course design. During this workshop participants have the opportunity to explore many standards of the Quality Matters rubric in depth, and to apply those standards to a demo course.

The workshop is totally online, so you’ll plan your own schedule. There are numerous engaging online activities, so you do need to be able to dedicate time during that 2 week period, up to 20 hours total.

Date: Tuesday, May 5th – Thursday, May 21st


  • Kristen Kane (Columbia Gorge CC)
  • Tani McBeth (PCC/Clark)
  • GwenEllyn Anderson (Chemeketa)


Contact Greg Kaminski. All you need to do is create a “MyQM” account   I will do the rest. The cost of this workshop is covered through our statewide OCCDLA grant.

I would like to do this, but cannot find 20 hours in the next two weeks. That seems like a lot, basically one day each week, when they are already full. I hope this is available again sometime.

It’s true that it’s a large time commitment. We usually offer this workshop once a term, though not this summer. The next one will be sometime fall term.
