Three Institutional Approaches to Online Learning Quality Assurance

Monday, February 04 | 4:45PM–5:30PM | Governor's Square 16
Session Type: Professional Development
As higher education institutions in the United States continue to expand their online courses and programs in record numbers, administrators across institutional types grapple with the challenge of ensuring the quality and integrity of these online learning environments for students. In this presentation, three institutions—a large community college system in Texas, a research institution in Florida, and a comprehensive regional public institution in Washington state—will describe their varied but proactive approaches to addressing this important challenge. Despite differences in scope and strategies for dealing with this critical concern, each institution has identified key indicators of quality assurance.

Learning Objectives:
* Identify the major quality indicators in online learning
* Differentiate between institutional approaches to implementing quality assurance
* Contribute to an informed discussion about quality assurance in online learning
* Find further resources to inform yourself on the topic
