Indiana University is a member of Quality Matters, an international organization dedicated to research-supported quality in online course design.
The “Quality Matters: Applying the Standards at IU” workshop introduces you to the foundational concepts behind Quality Matters, as well as to the eight General Standards that make up the QM rubric. It is a hands-on workshop in which you will practice applying the Specific Review Standards of the QM Rubric to an online course in Canvas.
This introductory workshop will help you think critically about your course design, be it online, hybrid, or face to face. Upon successful completion of this workshop, you will have the prerequisite to enroll in the Quality Matters Peer Reviewer Course, and could potentially become a QM-Certified Peer Reviewer.
The workshop lasts about 6 hours total. It may be offered as a single-day workshop or may be offered over three days. It is led by a certified Quality Matters facilitator from IU. Because of the in-depth nature of the workshop, registration is required.

IU Northwest is an institution that holds both teaching and research in high esteem. We believe that there is a symbiotic relation between the two.
CISTL invites faculty to discuss in an informal setting the variety of ways they bring (or anticipate bringing) their research into the classroom. Has one’s research affected what they teach or how they teach? Has one’s research affected the classroom experience? Or has a classroom experience affected one’s research? These are just some of the questions that may be explored while we enjoy the fellowship of our colleagues and consume our lunch.Please consider sharing your past experiences with your colleagues, or how you anticipate using your research from over the summer in future courses.
If you are interested in facilitating, please email the Center detailing what you would like to present as well as the subject of your presentation.
