Congratulations to Professor Kathy Tamerlano, whose IT1025 course was recently QM Certified! Quality Matters is a rigorous quality course design process that ensure that an online or blended/hybrid course is high quality. Quality instructional design is one of the three main components of student success in online environments (engagement and readiness are the other two generally accepted based on research.)
Professor Tamerlano worked with our instructional designer from Eastern Campus – Kristina Ambrosia-Conn in the preparation of the course, so snaps to our trusty ID representing from East as well.
Many thanks to all who participated in this, and congratulations to Professor Tamerlano whose commitment to online course quality drove the whole process.
P.S. In related news, there is an upcoming Applying the Quality Matters Rubric workshop Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio. The workshop will be conducted on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, from 9 am -3:30 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
