Online & Hybrid Certification Course
This course is designed to provide instructors with the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a high-quality online/hybrid course. Successful participants will also be able to teach effectively online through active facilitation and a variety of student engagement techniques and technologies. The campus sessions are typically on Friday, 1 - 2:30 p.m. in room 351 of Raleigh J. Finkelstein Hall, formerly Main Building. This is a hybrid course (online course with some classroom instruction). However, you are not required to attend these campus sessions if the previous week's work is completed. Those who do not attend will watch a video of the campus session.

Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR)
Facilitated by Meg Lockard, the APPQMR workshop will introduce you to the nationally-recognized Quality Matters course-design principles, which you can then apply to your own distance courses. Not only will this workshop provide you with concrete steps for course-design improvement but it will also qualify you to take additional workshops through QM, become a QM course reviewer, and even facilitate future workshops here at GRCC or online. The APPQMR workshop is a 6-hour commitment (lunch provided) that will result in an official QM certification, an improved understanding of the current research regarding course design, and, ultimately, happier and more successful students!
- Winter: Friday, January 24, 2020, 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. location TBD
