Committed to Quality

Step-1 of the mg国际首页 Online Promise is Committed to Quality. In this step, faculty commit to the six reciprocal guarantees outlined below. The faculty member meets with an instructional designer from Online Learning Services (OLS) at the beginning of a term, during mid-term reviews and, after the course has completed. At the beginning of the term, the instructional designer will review the course along with the faculty member's plan for meeting the six guarantees. The OLS instructional designer will also add the Committed to Quality badge to the course at this time. During the mid-term review, the faculty member and instructional designer will meet to review the course feedback and make any changes/improvements as necessary. After the course has ended, there will be a meeting to review any feedback from the end of course evaluations.

After completing the Committed to Quality step, a faculty member may wish to move to the next step, Quality Online Course by working with ITL for a peer-review of the course.
