Michigan Virtual partnered with Quality Matters (QM) to offer free professional development opportunities across Michigan that focus on ensuring quality in online learning. QM, a leader in online course quality assurance, has developed a rubric that integrates existing national standards for K-12 online education. Their workshops are designed for teachers, curriculum directors, instructional designers, and virtual program administrators and focus on how to interpret and apply the rubric.

This free offering consists of two workshops: the first on the use of the rubric in reviewing online and blended courses, and the second on conducting online course reviews. Participants can expect to spend approximately 5-10 hours per week to complete each workshop over a three-week period. The first workshop is available in either face-to-face or online delivery; the second is only available in an online format.

Michigan Virtual, through MVLRI, made a commitment to support all ISDs in Michigan in the participation of this program. Each ISD has been invited to select one individual to participate in the initiative. Once the training is complete, successful participants could choose to become a paid course reviewer for QM.

If you are interested in learning more about this free opportunity, please fill out the form at the bottom of our Quality Matters page.
