Quality Matters Showcase

Workspace with laptop, coffee, notebook, and pencil

Every semester, faculty across campus have their online courses reviewed using the Quality Matters internal review (QMIR) process, a nationally recognized procedure for evaluating online and hybrid course quality. These instructors not only receive extensive feedback about their courses. They also implement this feedback through individualized instructional design support. The post-review course amendment process is collaborative, educational, and sometimes intensive.

The list below highlights the achievement of each faculty member who has successfully completed the course review and amendment process. These teachers have deepened their expertise in online course design in a way that benefits their students and adds quality to their respective programs.

If you would like to request a QMIR for your course, please fill out the QMIR Request Form.
