Accessible and Impactful Course Design in Carmen
Wendy Klooster, Assistant Professor, Horticulture & Crop Science
Do you want to increase student engagement and success in your courses? Are you interested in attracting more diverse students? Making some strategic course design choices can help you achieve these goals. This session discussed the benefits of using the Quality Matters (QM) method for course design. Key features of this method relate to designing clear learning objectives, accurately measuring student progress, and leveraging instructional technology in the most effective way. Although specifically targeted to online or hybrid courses, any form of instruction, including in-person courses, extension, or mentoring, can benefit from consideration of the QM standards.
