Abstract

The UNC Charlotte Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in partnership with diverse campus units offers the Quality Matters Course Development (QMCD) program to enable the creation of quality online/blended courses and faculty professional development in online teaching. The program engages faculty in a 12-week long, cohort-based course development project. During the project, instructional designers work together with faculty as a pair to integrate QM course design standards into the course design and to develop the entire course on Canvas. The project also facilitates interaction among the faculty through a community-building activity via WebEx. The program provides clearly defined project processes and numerous scaffolding resources including an online workshop on learning objectives and QM training and course template. Once the course is developed, faculty submit their course for the QM Internal Review where a QM Faculty Fellow reviews the course design and provides another set of design feedback.
