Professor Margarita Altuna has received Quality Matters Certification for another one of her courses! Her hybrid course, Spanish I (SPN 1120), was recognized on January 19, 2019. She also received QM Certification for her online Spanish I course in May of 2018.
When asked about her experience taking a hybrid course through the QM Certification process, she shared:
Developing an Hybrid class has been an enriching experience that began in 2012 when I received a Development Award through the Distance Learning Instructional Design Course to create an Elementary Spanish 1120 Hybrid. Since that year, every semester I have been strengthening the face to face and online collaboration by taking advantage of the best of these two worlds.
Thanks to the constant support and variety of professional development training that the Online Learning and Instructional Technology Service team of USFSP offers me, I am able to present a well organized, well developed and, well structured hybrid Class.
Please join us in congratulating Professor Altuna for receiving certification for a second course!
We applaud Professor Altuna for her commitment to incorporate best practices and fostering student engagement across learning environments! Her course is now listed on the QM database of certified courses.
