Quality Matters conducts multiple professional development workshops aimed at improving online course design. Workshop participants who also teach face-to-face often report that their workshop experiences have had a beneficial effect on their face-to-face teaching. This session will present preliminary results from a research project that investigated ways in which participation in QM professional development has had an impact on an instructor's face-to-face teaching.
