Master Class: Course Quality Through the Lens of Learners
Pre-Conference Workshop Session 1
Online course quality is often evaluated through scorecards and rubrics developed by instructors and instructional designers. Although such evaluation instruments are essential to promote a life cycle of continuous improvement, the student voice in online course quality can be lost amongst checklists and rating systems. Let’s change this!
In this session, participants will approach online course quality through a student-focused lens by analyzing the results of a qualitative study conducted by the OLC Research Center and applying those results to the scorecards within the OLC Quality Scorecard Suite. In addition, participants will learn how to effectively solicit student feedback through surveys, technology tools, and UX/LX feedback, as well as strategies for how to collaborate with students more explicitly in the process of improving quality.
