Webinar: From Many to One: Aligning Online Course review tools and standards.
The presenters: Austin Haynes, Elearning Graphic Designer; and David Denny, Instructional Designer from TCC Connect Campus, Tarrant County College- April 21, 2020
- Brief description of the topic: This presentation will focus on the emerging need to align institutional standards in course design to national, state and institutional rubrics. Tarrant County College (TCC) currently utilizes the Quality Matters (QM) rubric to review online course content. The QM has established standards to certify the quality of online and blended courses. Additionally, institutions must consider the standards set forth by national and state accrediting organizations such as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). Finding the similarities in these standards and aligning these tools allows more time for instructional design staff to work collaboratively with faculty to build course content and pedagogical strategies.
