Assessing Online Teaching: Beyond Quality Matters

Audience
All Audiences
Session Description
The quality of faculty who teach online is critical to the success of online students. Online course quality measures, such as Quality Matters, are useful for evaluating the DESIGN of an online course. However, they are less effective in assessing the quality of those who TEACH online. In this presentation, we will discuss a research and development project identifying currently nationwide practices in assessing online teaching, the creation of an online “class observation” instrument, and a formal program to recognize and reward exemplary online faculty.
