Please join OLITS in congratulating Dr. Sharon Segrest! On August 22, 2019, her online course, Organizational Behavior (MAN 6244), received Quality Matters Certification.

Organizational Behavior is a core course for the Master of Business Administration program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg’s Kate Tiedemann College of Business. Through conceptual and experiential learning, Dr. Segrest provides students a framework within which they can understand how managers and subordinates interact by focusing on the characteristics of individuals and groups within organizations

Dr. Segrest shares the following advice with faculty preparing courses for QM review:

I would highly recommend the quality matters process to everyone, as it has definitely helped to improve my course. Fortunately, working with Karla Morris, and Carol Fisher have made the process much more manageable, and I recommend that others take advantage of the wonderful services available through the OLITS when pursuing the Quality Matters certification.

In addition to the QM process, the USFSP Online Teaching Certification program developed by OLITS was excellent, and helped me to learn so much useful information that I have used to improve my online courses.

Her course is now recognized by the Florida Virtual Campus as a “High Quality” course and will be listed on the QM database of certified courses.

If you are interested in preparing your course for Quality Matters review, contact Online Learning and Instructional Technology Services for more information.
