The Quality Course Teaching and Instructional Practice (QCTIP) Scorecard is the latest addition to the OLC Quality Scorecard suite. This comprehensive rubric addresses primarily online pedagogy and instructional practices that online instructors can use to self-evaluate and improve practice. However, because good course design is inherent to good teaching, the QCTIP scorecard also addresses components of quality course design. This workshop will introduce the QCTIP Scorecard, provide some of the foundational research used in the development and cover the fundamentals of the quality rubric. There will also be an hour-long optional (recorded) live session where you will get a chance to meet your facilitator, Dr. Kaye Shelton, the QCTIP researcher, to ask further questions.

Topics covered:
Online pedagogy, instructional design, best practices for teaching online
