Course Quality Review and/or Teaching Review
Penn State has created and utilized the Penn State Quality Assurance e-Learning Design Standards for many years in order to provide a measure of quality for courses serving the e-learning needs of Penn State students. These standards are based upon the Quality Matters Rubric for which Penn State is a subscribing member of the Quality Matters Organization.
As a service of courses offered within Shared Programs, the instructional designers that support Shared Programs can either facilitate a peer review of your course, conduct an instructional designer review of your course, or assist with a self-check of your course.
In addition to the course quality, Penn State’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences has created a Faculty Peer Review of Online Teaching and a Faculty Peer Review of Hybrid Courses that are both used throughout Penn State. Each guide is based on the “Seven Principles for Good Practices in Undergraduate Education,” a summary of 50 years of higher education research that addresses good teaching and learning practices.
As a service of courses offered within Shared Programs, the instructional designers that support Shared Programs can either facilitate a peer review of your teaching or conduct an instructional designer review of your teaching.
