QM Workshop Overview

The Quality Matters organization offers a wide variety of workshops designed specifically for higher ed instructors to build instructional skills and knowledge around online teaching. The Quality Matters Rubric is the foundation for each offering. 

Workshops run from 1 to 3 weeks and are offered multiple times throughout the year. Seating is limited. It is recommended that everyone start with the Applying the Quality Matters Rubric workshop since the Rubric is so foundational to the other sessions. In fact, it is a pre-requisite for taking some workshops such as the Peer Reviewer Course. 

QM Certificate Programs

Quality Matters also offers certificate programs such as the Teaching Online Certificate. To earn the TOC, you must successfully complete 7 workshops. To earn a certificate of completion or a program certification, you must successfully complete all required assignments.

Quality Matters also offers the Peer Reviewer course, which certifies individuals to participate in official course reviews. To register for the Peer Reviewer course, you must have successfully completed the Applying the Quality Matters Rubric workshop.
