Short Description

So you’ve implemented a review process for online courses! What's next? While effective on an individual basis, how can you encourage a “culture of quality” more broadly throughout the institution? Presenters will share project insights and strategies from UCF.

Abstract

In higher education, QM and other quality reviews have become a hot topic. With the onslaught of COVID19, the quality of online courses became more important than ever. The University of Central Florida began offering Quality and High Quality online course reviews in June 2017. This implementation was far from easy, as we developed our own standards, ensured they were aligned with Quality Matters, and created all faculty and instructional designer training and policies

With the online course review process now in place at our institution, our next focus is considering how our institution can realize a broader goal from the state of Florida's strategic plan: “The State University System will create a culture of quality for online education.” While the course review process is effective for individual online courses, there are other strategies that may gain the attention of faculty members who are simply not interested (or eligible) in engaging in such a thorough process.

By discussing our current practices at UCF and sharing ideas with attendees, we hope to generate new ideas and inspire others to pursue this goal.
