Thursday, February 04 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | Texas Ballroom Foyer, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
We will discuss the development of a Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) program. The program is faculty driven and involves a peer-reviewed process with the use of QOLT instruments that are designed to evaluate hybrid or online courses. Trained Quality Assurance Teams met with instructors to provide feedback and helped to develop a plan to incorporate suggestions and comments from the evaluation process. This pilot program enhances the awareness and understanding of quality online teaching and learning among faculty members. It provides a framework for future standardized procedures for assessing online teaching on the institutional level.

OUTCOMES: Analyze the 10 key elements that were used to evaluate online/hybrid courses * Evaluate the mechanism used to implement the faculty driven evaluation programs for online/hybrid courses * Determine the factors to be considered to implement the program
