Distributed Learning Quality Review Grant 2018

The Provost's Office instituted a Distributed Learning Quality Review process (DLQR) in 2013 as part of its commitment to ensuring high-quality distributed learning courses at the university. To successfully complete the review, each course must meet basic standards for design quality and ADA accessibility, which are spelled out in a review checklist approved by the Provost's Committee on Distributed Learning. The checklist is based on the Quality Matters™ Rubric, a nationally recognized quality benchmark.

Each year, the Provost's office contacts departments whose distributed-learning courses are slated for review, and the department chair designates a faculty member to prepare each course for the review. The review is conducted by instructional designers from the Center for Teaching Excellence and approved by the Provost's Distributed Learning Committee. Faculty preparing courses for review have access to assistance from CTE instructional designers and are eligible to receive a small course revision grant.
