Although we know the QM Rubric is valuable, it can be a challenge to get traditional large-university faculty to accept something from an external entity. The presenters want instructional designers and facilitators to share their experiences, trials, and errors and for faculty to share how the support they have received with QM has worked -- or not worked -- to meet their needs. The presenters hope to cover all aspects of QM: the Rubric, the Peer Review process, and the Professional Development courses -- to share tips and success stories.
Learning Objectives
Clarify and explore the feelings of a small group of large-university faculty regarding QM.
