Course Quality Assurance

Announcement: The university has requested specific quality assurance forms be completed with the temporary switch to online and hybrid learning during the pandemic. Please see the Keep Teaching site as well as communications from our Academic Affairs office on how to complete those requirements.

If you would like to have your course switch formats to online learning permanently, it will have to go through EHE's curricular review which starts at your program's chair and goes through the Curriculum Committee. As part of that review, we can conduct a quick "QM11 review" of your syllabus to ensure it meets all standards set by the college. Please use this form only if you need a QM11 review completed as part of a long-term transition of your course to online learning (DL or DH designations).

What is it?

A detailed, non-evaluative examination to help guide, inform, and influence the design of online course development. Using research-based practices and standards, quality assurance measures can help instructors improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of the course design and instruction. It is also a critical step in the curricular review process. Based on Quality Matters standards, OSCQR rubric, Universal Design for Learning, Principles of Multimedia Learning, and ARCS Model of Motivation Design.

How do I get started?

Use the request button to upload your syllabus and connect with an Academic Technology team member, who will review your documents and provide targeted feedback and set up a time to review the results.

What's Included?

An instructional designer will work with you to determine your individual quality assurance needs, but the review mechanisms that can be utilized include (but aren’t limited to):

  • QM11 Review Form (Curriculum Committee approval for new courses and changes in delivery mode)

Special Considerations

This service promotes the core idea of Exemplar Teaching and Learning within EHE’s Strategic Framework, corresponds with the teaching component of the promotion and tenure process, and can have a direct impact on student learning.
