Quality by Design (QbD) is a four-week online course that provides a unique opportunity for faculty and staff to improve courses through a framework for evaluating the effectiveness of seated, online or hybrid courses. QbD focuses on four major topics that are a key component of any quality designed course, including:
- Learner Support
- Content Presentation & Accessibility
- Interaction & Collaboration
- Evaluation & Assessment
This course is intended for all faculty and instructional support staff at all levels of experience with an interest in effective teaching and quality course design strategies.
We hope the following tips, tricks, and pedagogy techniques give teachers and instructors an extra boost of creativity and motivation. These episodes are perfect for your drive to work or can be integrated as a ten-minute think session to get your wheels turning before stepping into the classroom or “zooming” onto the computer screen.

This competency-based, skill-building course will help non-U.S. students, first-generation immigrants, and foreign-born professionals better understand and master American online learning, as well as other U.S. virtual environments, for college and career success. In the post-COVID era, the course can also be very instrumental in assisting U.S.-based institutions in organizing remote learning activities for their current or prospective international students.

Students will enter the fall semester with different needs than in the past – including some expectations that developed as a result of all the necessary changes this past year. College leaders will need to be aware of student expectations and figure out ways to meet them so that students will retain and complete.
In this webcast, we will look at several of the pandemic-era experiences students hope will continue, and some that higher ed leaders are predicting students will have, after the COVID-19 threat dissipates, and what it will take (both in effort and resources) for colleges to make these wants a reality.
Connect with fellow Higher Ed leaders to share ideas and insights on a fall term like no other. Scroll to the bottom of the page to be notified about the August sessions.
