Please join Online Learning and Instructional Technology Services in congratulating Dr. William Lang on receiving Quality Matters certification for his online course!
On August 11, 2017, Dr. Lang’s Foundations in Educational Research course, EDF 6481, received Quality Matters certification through the peer review process.
When asked about his experience, Dr. Lang shares:
“I really enjoyed the Quality Matters process, and I’m glad that USFSP supports excellence in on-line courses. Designing and maintaining distance learning is becoming more complex every year, so applying the QM standards and peer review helped me refine and improve this course. I also appreciate the design team and library staff who are an invaluable part of our DL effort. This particular course is a challenge regardless of the format, and I’m certain that students will benefit from the team effort.”
Dr. Lang’s course is the fourth to be certified from USFSP’s College of Education. His course is now listed on the QM database of award-winning courses from colleges and universities across the nation. Additionally, the QM Seal of Recognition will now be displayed on the front page of his online course.
The QM Certification process consists of a peer review guided by a research based rubric for high quality online course design. To help with preparation, OLITS offers a variety of professional development and resources. Contact your OLITS Instructional Designer for more information.
