Topic Details


Texas State instructors who teach online or hybrid courses are required to complete a professional development program, and this approved Quality Matters workshop is accepted for this requirement.

The “Designing Your Online Course” workshop includes an overview of the QM Rubric and provides a framework for participants to design an online course plan. An integral element of the workshop is exploration of the eight General Standards of the QM Rubric, focusing on learning objectives and overall course alignment. Participants will complete a Course Development Plan. The plan includes all of the essential Specific Review Standards (SRS) with a column for how the participant will meet the SRS in their course and what resources they will need.

Participants should select one of the three virtual workshop options:
