The California State University system implemented an approach to engage faculty in redesigning their courses for the 21st century learner. Components of the approach include supporting faculty to share course redesign models, facilitating discipline-based cohorts and a QA community of practice, and supporting campuses in implementing various quality assurance efforts. This session will share the systemwide approach for supporting campuses in launching Quality Assurance activities and three campuses will share their approaches for implementing QM on their campus.
