vikkiOnline Learning and Instructional Technology Services at the Nelson Poynter Library is excited to announce that on April 27, 2016, Dr. Vikki Gaskin-Butler  received Quality Matters recognition for her Personality Psychology course, PPE 4003. Through the peer review process, her course received the maximum score of 99 points.

Please join us in congratulating her on this significant achievement and her continued commitment to high quality online teaching and learning!

Dr. Gaskin-Butler’s course will be listed shortly on the QM database of award-winning courses from colleges and universities across the nation, bringing positive exposure to USFSP’s College of Arts and Sciences and to the campus. Additionally, the QM Seal of Recognition will now be proudly displayed in her online course.

The QM Certification process consists of a peer review guided by a research based rubric for high quality online learning course design. The eight general standards of the rubric include: Course Overview & Introduction, Learning Objectives, Instructional Materials, Learner Support, Accessibility & Usability, Course Activities, Learner Interaction & Engagement, and Assessment & Measurement.

Dr. Gaskin-Butler has asked that we also recognize the many people that helped make the QM Certification possible from course design and development through the internal and external review process. Those individuals include: David Brodosi, Karla Kmetz Morris, Michael Mathon, Robert Vessenmeyer, Nicole Emert, Marielle Machacek, Ashley Smith, Stephanie Fuhr, Caitlin Hill, Ilona Nemeth, Otis Wilder, Gary Austin, and Ricky Zager.
