CTLT will offer two chances for faculty to improve how students learn online.

This March, the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology will offer faculty two chances to improve how their students learn online. Learn about the Quality Matters Higher Education Rubric and how to use it to review an online course. This internationally recognized workshop includes hands-on activities designed to help you discover how to continuously improve an online course so that it meets research-based standards of high quality.

Normally, this workshop costs $300. As a service to University instructors, CTLT will offer this workshop free of charge to tenure-track faculty, non-tenure track (NTT) faculty, and administrators. Those who successfully complete either workshop will receive a Quality Matters certificate of completion. Registration is required.

Participants can choose from one of two different formats:


The first format is an all-day, face-to-face workshop offered as part of Spring Institute 2018. It will be offered from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 13,  at CTLT’s facility at 301 S. Main St. Luncheon will be provided. Learn more and register through CTLT’s Spring Institute page.


The second format allows instructors to experience online learning for themselves with a two-week, asynchronous workshop beginning Tuesday, March 20. Participants will work with the Quality Matters rubric while interacting with peers through online discussions and a step-by-step feedback process. This workshop will conclude April 2. Register for this version of the workshop through CTLT’s spring workshop page.

By the end of either workshop, you’ll be prepared to offer a revised and enhanced online experience that meets the needs of Illinois State’s diverse community of learners.
