Online Learning and Instructional Technology Services is incredibly thrilled to announce that Dr. Jenifer Hartman, of the USFSP College of Education, has received Quality Matters certification for her online course, Principles and Practices of Educational Supervision (EDS 6050). Her course was awarded certification on August 23, 2017.
Dr. Hartman developed this course as part of the online Masters Degree in Educational Leadership program. When asked about her experience with course development and the Quality Matters peer review process she shares:
The supervision course I was asked to design in an online format was one in which the goals were primarily focused on students developing effective interpersonal feedback and facilitation skills. I was skeptical about how those goals could be accomplished in an online format. OLITS professional development, collaboration, and support were key to developing an effective online supervision course, and going through the QM review process enabled us to refine it so students are successful and course evaluations are very positive.
Dr. Hartman’s course is the fifth to be certified from USFSP’s College of Education. Her course is now listed on the QM database of award-winning courses from colleges and universities across the globe. Additionally, the QM Seal of Recognition will now be displayed on the front page of her online course to signify to her students the commitment to a high-quality learning experience.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Hartman!
We look forward to working with other faculty through course design, professional development, and Quality Matters review. Contact Online Learning and Instructional Technology Services for more information.
