Enhancing Distance Course Design Using the OSCQR Rubric (Part 2)

September 22, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

The OSCQR (Open SUNY Course Quality Review) rubric is a free tool that supports continuous improvements to the quality and accessibility of distance courses. During this workshop you will discover how to utilize the OSCQR rubric to review the design of your own online or hybrid course. You will also participate as a peer reviewer, utilizing the same rubric to review the design of another participant’s course, providing them with a unique perspective. Some work (completing full course reviews and making course modifications per feedback) will be completed outside of the workshop hours. Participating in this full workshop meets the requirement to become an official, Harper, peer reviewer (should you choose to do so).

Instructor: Jenny Henrikson, Instructional & Distance Education Design Specialist, Academy for Teaching Excellence


There is also an online option available for this workshop: Monday, September 18 – Sunday, October 1. Access to course Blackboard Shell will open to registered faculty on Monday, September 18.
