KSU Online Course Peer Reviewer Training is now being offered for those interested in becoming more involved in KSU's internal online course reviews using the Quality Matters rubric. This certification includes two required components. The first part is delivered as a two-week online course, includes a review of the QM program and its guiding principles, and is delivered in the Quality Matters Learning Management System (Moodle). We will also examine the national QM review process, delve deeper into the general standards, and participants have the opportunity to practice writing feedback and reviewing a sample course. The second part is an online module. This component explains the internal review process and allows participants to apply the skills learned in the online workshop. Participants find this aspect of the workshop very valuable.

When we assign students a project or activity, we often take for granted that they will understand what we are asking them to do and why. Students do not always have the skills and ability to determine this, though, which is why writing assignments with a clear purpose, that explains the task in full, and provides the criteria on which students will be evaluated is so important. This webinar will explore the TiLT framework for assignment creation. Bring an assignment you currently use in one of your classes to study and revise throughout the session.

Research shows that community and a sense of belonging are associated with improved motivation and learning in undergraduate instruction. However, graduate student teachers seldom receive specific training in creating community when teaching undergraduates. This webinar introduces graduate students to community-building strategies in the undergraduate classroom to improve undergraduate learning.
