Examining the Student Voice in the Impact of Quality Matters

Tuesday, February 10 | 10:15AM–11:00AM | Pacific B, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Quality Matters is conducting two national studies to examine the student experience in online courses and the impact of Quality Matters on those experiences. This session will present the results from a precursor calibration study to one of the interinstitutional QM studies, for the semantic analysis of real-time, in-class, online student feedback. Quality Matters is collaborating with DropThought to integrate their feedback and analysis tools in support of this interinstitutional research project. The precursor calibration study results will explore the relationship between the QM General Standards and the experiences of faculty as students in the QM virtual professional development workshops.

OUTCOMES: Identify and discuss popular approaches to understanding the student experience in online courses * Review the initial outcomes of the current study * Discuss the relevance and potential of this research project to your own institution
