Learn how to evaluate your online course design at Quality Matters rubric workshop

Faculty, staff and students interested in learning more about course design and creating courses around a research-based rubric are invited to attend a Quality Matters training workshop in January.

Quality Matters is a national non-profit founded in 2003 to help establish best practices for quality assurance in online and digital teaching and learning environments.

The one-day hands-on workshops, underwritten by Purdue Online, allows attendees to use the Quality Matters Higher Ed Rubric, 6th edition to look at an online course and generate helpful recommendations so it meets quality standards, including defining items that need to be updated.

Workshops are scheduled for January 16 (registration deadline Dec. 20) and January 30 (registration deadline is Jan. 10). The cost is free to attend. Register by clicking here.

The one-day, eight-hour workshop covers the same material Quality Matters offers in its online rubric training, which typically costs $200 and takes place over two weeks. The in-person workshop also offers opportunity for feedback and networking, and has been used by individuals and departments preparing for accreditation reviews.

Those unable to attend the workshops can request a dedicated, private Applying the Quality Matters Rubric workshop for their department or unit, by contacting tlt@purdue.edu. The minimum course enrollment for such a training is six attendees.
